Description

Written and Directed by Alain Robbe-Grillet, 1970 (Eden and After) / 1972 (N. Took the Dice)

From the darkly erotic imagination of Alain Robbe-Grillet (Trans-Europ-Express) comes Eden and After, a dreamlike fable in which a group of decadent French students are drawn into the psychological and sexual games of a mysterious Dutchman (Pierre Zimmer). Once they imbibe his “fear powder”, the students experience a series of hallucinatory episodes: ruminations on death, explorations of sexual curiosity, and a striking tableaux of sadomasochistic fantasy.

This special edition includes an interview with writer/director Robbe-Grillet, and a complete alternative cut of the film, entitled N. Took the Dice.
