You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet


You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet (Vous n’avez encore rien vu) by Alain Resnais (France/Germany, 2012, 115 min.). A who’s-who of French acting royalty, Mathieu Amalric, Michel Piccoli, and Denis Podalydès, You Ain't Seen Nothin’ Yet is an alternately wry and wistful valentine to actors and performance art from a director long fascinated by the intersection of life, theater, and cinema. A group of thespians come to the reading of a late playwright’s will, and the playwright asks them to evaluate a recording of an experimental theater company performing his Eurydice. But as the video unspools, instead of watching passively, these seasoned performers begin acting out the text alongside their youthful avatars.
