Vous n'avez encore rien vu = You ain't seen nothin' yet by Alain Resnais( Visual )

15 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in French and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on two works by the playwright Jean Anouilh,You ain't seen nothin' yet opens with a who's-who of French acting royalty (including Mathieu Amalric, Michel Piccoli and frequent Resnais muse Sabine Azema) being summoned to the reading of a late playwright's last will and testament. There, the playwright (Denis Podalydes) appears on a TV screen from beyond the grave and asks his erstwhile collaborators to evaluate a recording of an experimental theater company performing his Eurydice--a play they themselves all appeared in over the years. But as the film unspools, instead of watching passively, these seasoned thespians begin acting out the text alongside their youthful avatars, looking back into the past rather like mythic Orpheus himself. Gorgeously shot by cinematographer Eric Gautier on stylized sets that recall the French poetic realism of the 1930s, You ain't seen nothin' yet is an alternately wry and wistful valentine to actors and the art of performance from a director long fascinated by the intersection of life, theater and cinema

"The effect of the Spanish Civil War on the lives of a group of anit-Franco exiles living in France, and still actively working for the overthrow of the dictatorship, is the subject of Alain Resnais' new film.

This is the work of a number of filmmakers who were opposed to the U.S. involvement in Vietnam but to varying degrees and for varying reasons. The fragmentary structure of at least seventeen different sections has been shaped by Marker so that the final effect is quite open-ended and coherent.
