Movie Info

As young men, Marcel (André Dussolier) and Pierre (Pierre Arditi) studied together at the same musical conservatory. They remain friends as adults, even if their lives have turned out very differently: Marcel is now a noted solo violinist while Pierre is an undistinguished player in a symphony. And, while Marcel has a happy marriage with Romaine (Sabine Azéma), Pierre is constantly on the prowl. This becomes evident when Marcel takes an unhealthy interest in Pierre's wife.

Audience Reviews for Mélo

  • Oct 16, 2008
    [font=Century Gothic]When I saw Alain Resnais' latest film, "Private Fears in Public Places" last year, I remarked that its theatricality was an aberration. After seeing his 1986 film "Melo" last night, I stand corrected. Its very staginess cannot be disguised by any amount of camera movement. [/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]"Melo" is a banal melodrama set in Paris in the 1920's. Romaine(Sabine Azema) and Pierre(Pierre Arditi) are a happily married couple whose bliss is only marred by their childlessness. They are joined one evening for dinner by an old friend, Marcel(Andre Dussollier). By the time he departs, he extends an open invitation to the couple to come by and visit him to hear him play the violin. In the next scene, it is Romaine who has done so alone, initiating an affair with Marcel.[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]By the way, Marcel is something of a hypocrite, having terminated a serious relationship in the past because he jealously felt his lover was lying to him. Now, he betrays a close friend in an adulterous affair with his wife, which is by its very nature rooted in lies. [/font]
