Critic Reviews for Life is a Bed of Roses
Resnais speculates on the utopian dream that life is infinitely perfectable, that human chaos, despair and horror can be spirited or educated out of existence. There are two stories, to correspond to each of these possibilities.
It's more memorable for various isolated witticisms and images than it is as a coherent whole. And its flightier touches can be deadly.
The material manages at once to be both precious and dry, the staging is unprofitably claustrophobic, and the structure less ingenious than arbitrary.
Eventually, the playfulness feels like pretentiousness without much substance, though fans of Demy may appreciate the random songs the film breaks into.
A unique and funny film from intellectual French director Resnais.
