Alain Resnais (1922-2014)

One of the greatest and most acclaimed French directors, Alain Resnais died on Saturday March 1st, at age 91. The filmmaker was born in 1922 in Vannes, France and was honored last month at the 64th Berlin International Film Festival for his last feature film, Aimer, boire et chanter (The Life of Riley) which won the Alfred Bauer Prize.

Alain Resnais became famous for his non-linear narrative films and is often associated with French New Wave directors such as Jean-Luc Godard and François Truffaut, as well as key players in the Nouveau Roman movement Alain Robbe-Grillet and Marguerite Duras, with whom he collaborated. His work includes highly praised short films such as Night and Fog (1955), documentaries, and feature films: Hiroshima Mon Amour (1958), Providence (1976), Muriel (1963), Je t’aime Je t’aime (1968),  My American Uncle (1980), and You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet (2013).
