L'Année Dernière a Marienbad: Last Year at Marienbad

Loading...
X attempts to convince A that they met last year in this same hotel (or maybe it was in a different one). They loved each other, emotionally and physically. She agrees to elope with him and get away from M, her husband (or lover). At the last moment, she refuses (for whatever reason) and asked for a one year postponement. Now, the year has passed and X has come to their agreed rendezvous to take her away. A claims she does not recognize X and does not remember any agreement between them. At first, X is surprised, and he recounts conversations the two of them had, supporting details, relating scenes convincingly. A persists in not remembering, even though X produces a photograph of her as a proof of his claim.

Los Crimenes de Oxford

Loading...
"Una anciana aparece asesinada en el salón de su casa a las afueras de Oxford. Su cuerpo es descubierto por dos hombres, Arthur Seldom, prestigioso profesor de Lógica y Martin, un joven estudiante americano recien llegado a la universidad con la intención de que el famoso profesor dirija su tesis doctoral. La muerte de la anciana no es sino el primero de una serie de asesinatos con inquietantes puntos en común. Son crimenes casi imperceptibles, que podrían incluso pasar por muertes naturales si no fuera porque cada uno de ellos viene acompañado de un mensaje: una imagen, un signo diferente en cada ocasión que, muerte a muerte, va dando forma a una serie cuya lógica deberán descifrar los protagonistas"--Taken from back of DVD container.
