Reminiscence: Alain Resnais

Two films – an iconic landmark and a more recent stylistic experiment – recall the extraordinary career of the late French film director Alain Resnais (1922 – 2014). The prevailing theme that runs through Resnais’ work, the mysteries of memory, is explored from different perspectives. This program is presented in collaboration with the Cultural Service of the Embassy of France. The screenings are free but reservations are required. Please visit

Coeurs (Private Fears in Public Places)

France - 2006 - 120 min - 35mm

in French with English subtitles


SYNOPSIS

 Resnais’s attraction to theater resulted in several adaptations of plays by the celebrated Yorkshire dramatist Alan Ayckbourn. The latter’s cerebral 2004 comedy Private Fears in Public Places, a tale of six characters who weave warily through four inter-connected stories, was the basis for Coeurs. Shooting on soundstages with stylized sets and making use of his own acting company, Resnais shifted the play’s setting from England to France but left Ayckbourn’s plot intact. The effect is a dreamlike fantasy on longing, “accessible, pleasant, a touch goofy and melancholic” – Manohla Dargis. (Renais’ final film, which was awarded a major prize at the 2014 Berlin Film Festival shortly before his death, and has yet to open in the U.S., is also based on an Ayckbourn play).
