Kino Picks Up Alain Resnais’ You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet

With its premiere at this year’s NYFF on its way, Kino Lorber and director Alain Resnais have decided to jump the gun a bit, and work together to release his next picture.

The film, entitled You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet is the latest film from Last Year At Marienbad and Hiroshima Mon Amour director Resnais, and has been picked up from Studio Canal. Starring Mathieu Amalric and Pierre Arditi, the film follows a playwright who ‘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 video 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.’

This is a huge get for Kino, as not only is the cast for this film a massive collection of French talent, but it comes to us via one of the art film world’s greatest names. Resnais is a legendary auteur still kicking decades into a masterful career. The film sounds like one of his most interesting pictures in quite some time, and frankly, it can’t get here fast enough. The quick pick up by Kino makes the anticipation build only greater.
