Movie Info

Based on two works by the playwright Jean Anouilh, YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHIN' YET opens with a who's-who of French acting royalty being summoned to the reading of a late playwright's last will and testament. There, the playwright (Denis Podalydès) appears on a TV screen from beyond the grave and asks his erstwhile collaborators to evaluate a recording of an experimental theater company performing his Eurydice-a play they themselves all appeared in over the years. But as the video unspools, instead

What affects us most is Resnais's ingenious idea. And that affect is magnified by a surprise ending.

Resnais' occasional use of split-screen and other traditional special effects enhances the picture's various dualities, dreamy quality and decided staginess.

Despite some hyperbolic excess, the process of Resnais' production is unexpected and free, and revisits the very nature of cinema, and theater, with a wondrous eye.

There is something both mischievous and moving about a world-famous director who, closing on his 10th decade, designs a movie that celebrates his actors: their varying ages, their versatility, their heart.

"You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet" is a sly, elegant meditation on the relationship between reality and artifice. But it is a thought-experiment driven above all by emotion.

Complex yet lighthearted, as diverting as it is meditative.

Beautiful, difficult, frustrating, and engrossing, You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet is an undeniable accomplishment of form and experimentation.

(Resnais is) still so far ahead of the multiple generations that have tried to follow in his footsteps, sometimes you just start feeling embarrassed for everyone else.

At times I found myself not following the story so much, as merely drifting along with the strange moods of the movie.

Director Alain Resnais, now 91 and still at it, has made some great films. This isn't one of them.

The prodigious talent on display is in itself a treat. The vision becomes added pleasure for those willing to enter into the spirit of exquisite pain and happiness alike.

Repetitive and stodgy performance by older veterans of a fictitious director.

While the meta-theatrical staging is artful and impeccable and the performances (pulled from a cast of actors Resnais has used over several decades) are superb, it's not the easiest film to sit through.

Audience Reviews for You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet!

The theatricalization of Cinema as intended by Resnais may be absorbing at first while exploring a touching sense of nostalgia from the characters/actors. But this scene play is not compelling enough, though, to deserve two hours, becoming artificial and vapid after a while.

I'd be tempted to think the film was all just some pretentious exercise if it wasn't so moving. Resnais (who's 91 by the way) has put together something totally remarkable here, as he combines so many different styles and still manages to make the film thematically consistent.
