L’amour à Mort d’Alain Resnais (1984)

June 4, 2012

This film from 1984 represents the third common effort by filmmaker Alain Resnais and screenwriter Jean Gruault. It’s not a challenging movie experience like Mon Oncle d’Amerique but – being a Resnais – its form of short vignettes accompanied by musical breaks is not quite usual to see. The two words of the title – amour/love and mort/death – are at the center of the vignettes and the musical breaks help and enhance the story while providing a moment to collect your thoughts and to manage the flow of information the brief but meaningful images are conveying.  The gripping music is by German composer Hans Werner Henze, while the gorgeous cinematography is by the great Sacha Vierny.
