Description

Written and Directed by Alain Robbe-Grillet, 1968, AKA L’homme qui ment

On the run from pursuing soldiers, Boris (Jean-Louise Trintignant) finds refuge in a small
European town which, years before, was home to Jean, a resistance fighter hunted by the Nazis. Boris ingratiates himself into the community, weaving elaborate tales of his encounters with the martyred rebel, and thereby seducing Jean’s widow… and sister… and maid. But Boris’s erotic games are interrupted when a mysterious stranger – who may, in fact, be Jean – arrives in the village.
