Le chant du Styrène Reviews

  • Jan 16, 2014

    A marvelous, artistic, somewhat arch ode to plastics manufacturing by French New Wave director Alain Resnais. An epic-style Alexandrine poem read by actor Pierre Dux is accompanied by object and production imagery sometimes reminiscent of Saul Bass designs. The effect is entertaining, occasionally informative, and sometimes a bit inspiring.
