Cast: Delphine Seyrig, Giorgio Albertazzi, Sacha Pitoğff
France, 1961, 94',  b&w

Pera Film will host the Turkish premiere of the newly restored 4K version of the film.

The film takes place in a grand, baroque château: a huge static space all gold and marble with endless corridors, slender pillars, richly ornate ceilings, statues, mute servants and deserted grounds. The guests in this odd kind of hotel drift about as if out of some sort of strange fatality, living a jaded, pampered, ritual existence. Everyone in this prison-like luxury hotel embodies sclerosis and hypnosis. A man with an Italian accent moves through the architecture of the labyrinthine château as if he can't quite find his way. He is driven to follow and talk to a woman who he claims to have met the year before. However, she doesn't remember or doesn't want to remember.

Last Year at Marienbad

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

Coffee was served with much splendor at the harems of the Ottoman palace and mansions. First, sweets (usually jam) was served on silverware, followed by coffee serving. The coffee jug would be placed in a sitil (brazier), which had three chains on its sides for carrying, had cinders in the middle, and was made of tombac, silver or brass. The sitil had a satin or silk cover embroidered with silver thread, tinsel, sequin or even pearls and diamonds.
