YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHIN' YET    VOUS N’AVEZ ENCORE RIEN VU/YOU AIN’T SEEN NOTHIN’ YET  (PG) 2012 FRANCE   RESNAIS, ALAIN     £15.99
Theatre, memory and the past combine as a group of actors reunite on the wishes of their former director. Informed by telephone that noted theatre director Antoine d’Anthac (Denis Denis Podalydès) has died, a group of actors are requested to attend his home to view a videotaped performance of the play ‘Eurydice’, by a young theatre troupe called La Compagnie de la Colombe. All of the actors gathered together, including Mathieu Almaric, Sabine Azéma, Jean-Noël Brouté, Anne Consigny, Pierre Arditi and Anny Duperey (all playing themselves), have performed the play in the past, and as they watch, they find themselves inadvertantly acting out their former roles, becoming part of the play as the boundaries between fantasy and reality begin to blur.
