New York Film Festival 2012: You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet


A group of prominent French actors (including Michel Piccoli, Mathieu Amalric and Sabine Azéma) are summoned to a remote mountain mansion to view a deceased colleague’s production of Eurydice. As the play goes on, the wall that separates spectator from thespian is breached. Soon enough, the performers are reciting lines and stepping fully into the roles that they played many years before. New Wave icon Alain Resnais directs this jaunty metafiction with the same anything-goes gusto as his wonderful Wild Grass (2009), employing trick lighting, digital effects, split screens and thrilling coups de théâtres to explore the melancholy heart of the creative process.—Keith Uhlich
