“Resnais [continues] in the playful/didactic mode of MON ONCLE D’AMÉRIQUE. A pedagogical conference, held in a whimsical castle in the French countryside, is intercut with flashes back to the revels of the original proprietor, a 19th-century visionary who uses his society friends in perception-altering experiments.” – Dave Kehr
