Alain Robbe-Grillet, was a French writer and filmmaker. He was, along with Nathalie Sarraute, Michel Butor and Claude Simon, one of the figures most associated with the Nouveau Roman (new novel) trend – a method that resembles the experience of psychoanalysis in which the deeper unconscious meanings are contained in the flow and disruptions of free associations. Yet his work is ultimately characterized by its ability to mean many things to many different people. Alain Robbe-Grillet was elected a member of the Académie française in 2004.
He worked as an agronomist in Martinique, French Guinea, Guadeloupe, and Morocco and died in Caen after succumbing to heart problems
As a filmmaker, he started writing screenplays, notably for Alain Resnais’ 1961 film Last Year at Marienbad, a critical success that is considered to be one of the finest French films of the 1960s. It was followed by a number of films written and directed by Robbe-Grillet himself: Trans-Europ-Express (1966), his two French-Slovak films L’homme qui ment/Muž, ktorý luže (The Man Who Lies) (1968), L’Eden et après/Eden a potom (Eden and After) (1970), Glissements progressifs du plaisir (The Slow Slidings of Pleasure) (1974), Le jeu avec le feu (Playing with Fire) (1975), La belle captive (The Beautiful Captive) (1983) and many others.
