From the darkly erotic imagination of Alain Robbe-Grillet comes 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 striking tableaux of sadomasochistic fantasy. This special edition includes an interview with writer/director Robbe-Grillet, and a complete alternate cut of the film, entitled N. THROWS THE DICE.

This set also has a second film called "N. Took the Dice"(1972) which was made up from alternate takes and unused footage from "Eden and After". The film was constructed using ideas found in aleatoric music, which leaves some elements of the composition up to chance. By rolling a dice Robbe-Grillet constructed an order to the scenes.
This film looks excellent and apparently was remastered and cleaned up of dust. There is also a thirty-one minute interview with director about the two films.
