Critic Reviews for Stavisky...

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (3)

A deceptively ruminative entertainment with a fizzy melancholy, and awash in sensory pleasures.

October 11, 2018 | Full Review…

A spell-casting mood piece that is also factually frustrating.

May 9, 2005 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Like Charles Foster Kane, Alexandre Stavisky is a man of intriguing parts that make up any number of wholes.

October 23, 2004 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

Rarely are style and content so consciously, and thoroughly, mixed. And rarely does a film so sparkle with dreams of decades past.

August 6, 2021 | Full Review…

Deceptively beautiful, deceptively linear, Stavisky is a complex and subtle work, a worthy successor to [Alain] Resnais' most controversial films.

December 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Resnais and Semprún's themes are pleasure, happiness, riches, death, and the past -- as envisaged in the stylized recall of fancy-dressed individuals and the nation.
