You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet
aka Vous n'avez encore rien vu
First screened in March 2013
Director: Alain Resnais. Cast: Vimala Pons, Sylvain Dieuaide, Denis Podalydès, Sabine Azéma, Pierre Arditi, Anne Consigny, Lambert Wilson, Mathieu Amalric, Michel Piccoli, Anny Duperey, Hippolyte Girardot, Gérard Lartigau, Michel Robin, Andrzej Seweryn, Michel Vuillermoz, Fulvia Collongues, Vincent Chatraix. Screenplay: Alain Resnais and Laurent Herbiet (based on the plays Eurydice and Cher Antoine, or Failed Love by Jean Anouilh).

Twitter Capsule: Nastier than Resnais' last. Passion, nostalgia, narcissism of aging actors make young invisible to them.

VOR:   Plays like self-aware swan song of a master, even if he manages more. Rare film to delve earnestly into ideas about theater.
