The Reality of the Symbol


INTERVIEWER

In Marienbad, and some of your other films, certain shots are repeated throughout. Is it a way of emphasizing a particular incident, or image?

No. It is the other way round; it is not because a scene is important that it is repeated, but by being repeated it becomes important.
