  • What makes this movie electrifying is Robbe-Grillet's framing and cutting and Trintignant's performance. In literature, Robbe-Grillet specialised in long, insanely detailed descriptions, during which the reader sometimes discovers that the author has started describing a whole different scene somewhere along the way, without giving notice. In cinema, the artist moves in a snappier way, building up a scene from fragments, frequently freezing his actors in situ while the camera jumps around them.
