Alain Resnais at Play

MUBI Special

We remember the great “Left Bank” New Wave auteur Alain Resnais on his birthday with a trio of three major, adventurously playful movies from across his career, including his penultimate film, You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet (2012), his modernist masterpiece Last Year in Marienbad (1961), and the ripe-for-rediscovery period film Stavisky… (1974), starring Jean-Paul Belmondo with an original score by Stephen Sondheim.

You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet

Alain Resnais France, 2012


We conclude our triple feature of films by Alain Resnais with his wonderfully sly and melancholy penultimate film. As in his best movies, it showcases the power of the cinema to imagine love, memories, history, and the impossible. For more, see our Notebook.

Our Resnais celebration continues to dive further into his cinematic puzzle box, this time trading the mysterious villa that was Marienbad in for the shadowy world of 1930’s France aristocracy. Stavisky is a romantic, even elegiac, game of deception which stars the legendary Jean-Paul Belmondo.

Last Year at Marienbad

Alain Resnais France, 1961


Over the next three days we honor the birthday of Left Bank auteur Alain Resnais with a decade-spanning range of visionary cinema. We begin with perhaps the most famous of puzzle films, a time-warping, space-shifting drama of fantasy and memory inspired by Hitchcock and inspiration to The Shining.
