Alain Robbe-Grillet (1922)

Robbe-Grillet, a French novelist and filmmaker, is considered the originator of the nouveau roman, or "new novel." This genre, also called the antinovel, dispenses with conventional notions of plot, character, style, theme, psychology, chronology, and message. In Robbe-Grillet's The Erasers, for example, a detective searches for the killer in a murder that has not yet occurred, only to discover that he will be the murderer. The novel is based on what legend from ancient Greece? More...

'When a novelist has ‘something to say’, they mean a message. It has political connotations, or a religious message, or a moral prescription. It means ‘commitment,’ as used by Sartre and other fellow-travellers. They are saying that the writer has a world view, a sort of truth that he wishes to communicate, and that his writing has an ulterior significance. I am against this’

Huh? Do you mean Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870), the French author?
No, the ancient Greek story of Oedipus was told by Sophocles (497/496BCE - 406/405BCE).
As rappers would say: he was a real motherf-!

The novel superficially resembles a detective novel, but it contains within it a deeper structure based on the tale of Oedipus. The detective is seeking the assassin in a murder that has not yet occurred, only to discover that it is his destiny to become that assassin.

Blu-ray Review: ‘L’immortelle’ a forgotten staple of French arthouse
1 April 2014 7:49 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

L’immortelle

Written and directed by Alain Robbe-Grillet

France, 1963

Just by examining the title, L’immortelle appears to be the quintessential Alain Robbe-Grillet film. It’s French, it’s feminine (that is, it’s being used to describe a woman), and it translates to “The Immortal”, a reference to how often the woman appears posthumously thanks to its unique narrative structure. Robbe-Grillet is primarily known as a writer, and known in the film world for having penned Resnais’s equally immortal Last Year at Marienbad just 2 years before this feature. The sudden explosion of discussion for Marienbad quickly made it synonymous with French arthouse flair. It was difficult yet rewarding; beautiful yet quietly violent. His hand in Marienbad is immediately evident in L’immortelle, even down to Resnais’s influence in spending half the film covering the surrounding architecture. Despite exclusion from discussion of those involved with the nouvelle vague »
