Private Fears in Public Places (Alain Resnais, 2006)

***
France



The traces of zest and resonance in this dramedy about six desperately lonely, interconnected Parisians have less to do with the slight and slightly pretentious source play by Alan Ayckbourn than with Alain Resnais' playful, often inspired handling of it. The characters and their various connections and disconnections feel very much 'written', but at least for as long as the movie lasts, the actors convey enough warmth and charm to distract you from this.
