X, A & M
The film X, A & M, made in collaboration with Danai Anesiadou, may seem positively icy and tame, academic even – an impression made even more inescapable once it becomes clear that their project is based on a shared enthusiasm for Alain Resnais’ elegiac, elusive Nouvelle Vague classic L’Année dernière à Marienbad from 1960. Periodically enacting parts of the original, Robbe-Grillet-penned dialogue (here heard in voice-over) of L’Année dernière à Marienbad, Anesiadou appears as a mysterious, world-weary young woman locked inside the desolate dreamworld of Central European, aristocratic sanatorium culture, the imagined décadent backdrop of some of her earlier work, likewise engaged in a scenography of mood rather than straightforward narration.
