3 things about Alain Resnais’ MURIEL, OR THE TIME OF RETURN

Muriel, or The Time of Return [1963]

1. Magic hour: standing at the crowded bar with a coffee, chatting with the cashier, the clouds and sky in the windows behind them.
2. “It’s easier to talk outside, isn’t it?”
3. Sliding box.

Elusive. Each time I was about to identify with one of the characters, the film would do something to push me away. Haunting though.
