"Resnais models his liquid, bittersweet style on Lubitsch, and the shimmering, romantic results are often spellbinding and haunting."--Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

Like Resnais’s LAST YEAR AT MARIENBAD, STAVISKY is set amid palatial corridors, where mirages of a much different sort materialize. Belmondo gives one of his best performances in this lush, fact-based period-piece about the Russian-Jewish con artist whose financial chicanery led to the downfall of the French Left in the 1930s. In his next-to-last film, French-born Hollywood star Charles Boyer is tremendously moving as an old-guard aristocrat dazzled by Stavisky's dreams. Screenplay by Jorge Semprún (Z, LA GUERRE EST FINIE). Music by Stephen Sondheim. In French with English subtitles. New 2K DCP digital restoration. (MR)
