Last Year in Marienbad (1961) : My top 5 posters

Alain Resnais’ masterpiece “Last Year at Marienbad” (1961) is indeed one of many great works he delivered throughout the years. Along with “Hiroshima mon Amour” (1959), it is surely one of the director’s most known work.

Let us check out how the film got presented, through its posters, in France, Germany, Japan and Poland…

This first image is a poster painted by Ercole Brini (1913-1989), born in Rome, whose work ranges from Rear Window to The Bycicle Thief. His work is characterized by strong brush strokes together with a very distinct water-color style.

This Last Year in Marienbad is one of his distinguished works.
