Coeurs en hiver
I’ve just seen the movie today, and enjoyed it a lot, even if I won’t range it among my Resnais favorites. The story in itself is simple but full of allusions and “non-dits”. It reminds me altogether of “Smoking/No Smoking”, without the narrative twist, and “On connaît la chanson”, without the songs. I like the way Resnais creates a whole universe, half realistic, half dreamlike, with only six characters, limited sets and omnipresent snow. These six characters struggle with loneliness, butting against various obstacles : wrong match, bad luck, lack of will or perverse manipulation. The general atmosphere is kind of sad, but in a cool and soft way (snowy if I may say so), and with humorous touches, especially all that relates to videotapes and an invisible but perfectly audible grumpy old man played by Claude Rich (which makes seven characters actually). The acting is impeccable, with a special note for Sabine Azema, André Dussolier and Pierre Arditi. And an interesting cast for Lambert Wilson (playing against type).
It’s like a very beautiful puzzle that is missing a bunch of pieces.
“Private Fears in Public Places” is an extremely frustrating film. On one hand, the film is gorgeous to look at and listen to–simply gorgeous. The transitions are quite imaginative and lovely and the music really sets the mood. I would also say that the film by directed well (by Alain Resnais) and the acting was very, very good. But, as for the story, so much of it seemed to make little sense and the overall pieces, though gorgeous, just didn’t seem to fit together.
The story is about several people who are slightly interconnected. They all are struggling with feelings of loneliness and quiet desperation. However, a few stories made no sense and I kept hoping for there to be a sense that it would all make sense….which it didn’t (such as the snow INSIDE the house). The story that particularly annoyed me was the Christian lady whose behaviors simply made no sense—was this an attack on Christians or just a badly written character? There just wasn’t any rhyme or reason to her actions nor are there any hints about who she is. It’s maddening–as are many of the other stories. All work like snippets that just don’t make up a coherent whole. A beautiful misfire, but a misfire.
