In Nouveau Roman practitioner Alain Robbe-Grillet’s first color film, a group of French Parisian students—led by elusive French actress Catherine Jourdan— explore sexuality and violence through a series of games accompanied by the use of a hallucinatory “fear powder.” Drawing together the diagrammatic and phenomenological experimentalism of Robbe-Grillet’s novels and various other art-adjacent obsessions, Eden and After maps the hopes and disappoints emerging from the end of the student-led revolts throughout May 1968. Psychotropic, transgressive, and puzzling, this infamous but underseen staple of European genre cinema is unforgettable. Contains mature content, including nudity and sexual violence.
