Trivia

There are actually 8 versions of the play "Intimate Exchanges", but the director cut two of the possible outcomes in order to streamline the process. Also, the material in them was thought to be 'too British' for easy translation. See more »

the best Resnais
21 December 2004 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most intelligent and elegant movies ever made. And, still, it's funny and somehow happy. Of course, if you don't like minimalism and a playful conception, you will not love it. But you have to see it. Growing old, Alain Resnais becomes younger and fresher. It's far younger than all the Tarantinos. He's more free. Free from the author's giant ego, free from the film-industry mechanics, free from the boredom of 90% of "high" french movies, free from the film-language, free from everything but its own structure. Great actors, great conception. The only limit is that it's too new and too theatrical for the normal viewer. It requires a watcher with the same kind of freedom. Sorry for my broken English. However, You have to see it, really.
