The Independent Culture

Ostensibly a comedy of manners, Alain Resnais' latest tailspins into a story of obsession, rejection and, finally, outright oddness with an airborne finale that climaxes in the most confusing, if compelling, ending since Kubrick's 2001.

So much is left unsaid: why is Georges so scared of the police? Why do three shrewd women fall for this fantasist? It's a playful tale of the fiction on screen and the fictions in our heads – and it's a bamboozler.
