Known for stylistically adventurous films like LAST YEAR AT MARIENBAD, French director Alain Resnais transitions to a self-consciously subdued form in MELO. Adapted from the 1929 play by Henri Bernstein, the film follows the evolving love triangle between a violinist's wife and his best friend. "Melo" is short for melodrama, and the film offers an intriguing exercise in that tried-and-true form.
