SYNOPSIS

From beyond the grave, celebrated playwright Antoine d’Anthac gathers together all his friends who have appeared over the years in his play ‘Eurydice’.  These actors watch a recording of the work performed by a young acting company, La Compagnie de la Colombe. Do love, life, death and love after death still have any place on a theatre stage? It’s up to them to decide. And the surprises have only just begun…


REVIEWS

4 STARS The film is touching, but more than that it’s wise, witty and thought-provoking. – Geoff Andrew, Time Out London

Whether Resnais will complete another movie remains to be seen, but if this were by any chance to be his swansong, with its distant and resonant echoes of ‘Hiroshima Mon Amour’ (made 63 years earlier), it would certainly be a lovely one. – Geoff Andrew, Time Out London

Resnais undoubtably demonstrates his continuing power as a great cinematic auteur. – Ginette Vincendeau, Sight & Sound

Digital technology meets lyrical drama and classical myth in this puckishly daring, intricately original work of docu-theatre from the ninety-year-old director Alain Resnais. – Richard Brody, The New Yorker

A tour de force of directorial navigation in which Resnais suggests that the proper relation between the cinema and the theater is to throw it all together, take the best of both worlds and present it as pure showmanship. – Andrew Schenker, Slant Magazine

Resnais fitfully achieves a fully emotive, self-aware form of art that realizes his lifelong search for a cinema that refracts and translates the range of human experience and “experience” alike. – Andrew Schenker, Slant Magazine

Movingly sincere and personal – Little White Lies

You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet is a veritable masterpiece on par with his major accomplishments. – Boris Nelepo , Notebook

Unashamedly experimental, the film is sumptuously, even rapturously mounted, with glowingly atmospheric photography by Eric Gautier, and imposingly protean design by Jacques Saulnier. (…) it’s still a film of bristling intelligence that will delight lovers of cerebral upmarket cinema. Jonathan Romney, Screen

The confluence of theater, memory and real life for a group of actors in an explicitly artificial world sparks rarefied aesthetic pleasures… this reflection on the past, love and death through the prism of layers of theatrical endeavour is both serious and frisky, engaging on a refined level… in all respects, the film is technically immaculate. Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter
