At an age when one might expect a darker, more abstract work, Resnais' recent SAME OLD SONG is one of his lighter, most direct films, bittersweet to be sure, but accessible, charming, and wise. He dedicates the film to the late Dennis Potter (The Singing Detective), and adopts Potter's wildly original technique of using excerpts from pop music recordings on the soundtrack, with the characters on the screen lip-synching the lyrics which are woven into the dialogue to comment on their thoughts at various key moments. But where Potter used this technique in the context of black, scathing satire, Resnais is in a gentler mood, using the song lyrics to underscore some of his themes expressed in the multiple relationships in the film. Potter's songs, too, are generally old standards which are known to - and have resonance for - English speaking audiences. Resnais uses songs that one assumes are similarly familiar to French-speaking audiences, but will likely be less associative for others.
