The Man Who Lies

Alain Robbe-Grillet, 1968, France, Czechoslovakia

On the run from pursuing soldiers, Bois finds refuge in a small European town which, years before, was home to Jean, a resistance fighter hunted by Nazis. Boris ingratiates himself in 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.
