Private Fears in Public Places


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.
