Dir. Alain Resnais. 1966, 121 mins. With Yves Montand, Ingrid Thulin, Geneviève Bujold. Montand is Diego, a world-weary revolutionary without a cause, a 40-year-old shuttling back and forth between France and his native Spain and trying to come to terms with his restless political beliefs. Resnais uses flash-forwards, flashbacks, and fantasy sequences to capture Diego’s endless unease, and his status as a man without a country, or even a solid sense of identity.
