Movie Info

In this homage to acclaimed TV scripter Dennis Potter (1935-1994), famed 75-year-old French director Alain Resnais (Hiroshima, Mon Amour, Last Year at Marienbad) has actors lip-synch in a manner instantly recalling Potter's Pennies from Heaven (1978 TV serial, 1981 movie) and The Singing Detective (1986), regarded by some as the best original work ever created for television. Completing her history dissertation, Camille (Agnes Jaoui) is a Paris tour guide, and Simon (Andre Dussolier) is a

This is a puny benefit for a device that's arbitrary and precious and results in slowing down scenes and conversations for no reason but cuteness.

By the end of the film you've become more than superficially acquainted with six recognizable and complicated individuals. How many movie musicals can make that claim?

Sublime work from an old but still innovative French New Waver.

Densely plotted and endearingly neurotic.

Give Resnais credit for trying something different.

A multi-layered love story and meditation on the natural human condition, where the characters lip sync to famous French songs, current pop, and older music as well, used as inner-monologues, dialogue and thought.

What may have been intended as playful comes off as unbearably leaden and incongruous instead.

A tired tune, conducted by a maestro who appears to be tone-deaf.

In his middle seventies, Resnais is still going full-tilt.

The film has its funny moments, but as a satire of the bourgeoisie it's working awfully familiar territory.

There's not a lot of bite to this satirical musical, but Resnais has never made a bad film...
