Director: Alain Resnais. With Life is a Bed of Roses, filmmaker Alain Resnais wanted to create a lighthearted tribute to three important French directors, each of whom defined a particular era in his country's cinema Melies (the first French filmmaker to use narrative-his most famous film is A Trip to the Moon), the impressionist L'Herbier (most famous for his. Inspirational avant garde work during the '20s) and Rohmer (most famed for his sextet of "Moral Tales" during the '60s).

ALAIN RESNAIS'S film ''Life Is a Bed of Roses'' is nothing if not elliptical. Myth, glassy theatric decor, operatic singing in the first. Alain Resnais directs three parallel stories that have to do with fantasy and imagination in the adult world. 'Life Is a Bed of Roses,'' which was written by the distinguished screenwriter Jean Gruault, can indeed be humorous. Miniature model, actual building and ritualized experiment that later takes place there in the second. In one of them is a sort of Operatic bordello story where a rejected architect attempts to manipulate a group of people into throes of happiness-only his attempt misses it's only real target, the woman that he pines after.

Resnais speculates on the utopian dream that life is infinitely perfectable, that human chaos, despair and horror can be spirited or educated out of existence. There are two stories, to correspond to each of these possibilities
Resnais speculates on the utopian dream that life is infinitely perfectable, that human chaos, despair and horror can be spirited or educated out of existence. There are two stories, to correspond to each of these possibilities. In the first, set in 1914, Count Forbek (Raimondi), aristocrat, aesthete and visionary, erects a Temple of Happiness in which a select few will be drugged into a state of original innocence.
1983 ‘La vie est un roman’ Directed by Alain Resnais. Enki Bilal Catherine Leterrier. Alain Resnais' film from 1983 attempts to present ideas about love, culture and happiness formed in three stories which take place in the same location. In this whimsical fable, Resnais deftly interweaves three story lines: the creation of an early-20th-century utopia; romantic high jinks at a school conference; and a fantasy sparked by F/X pioneer Georges Méliès. Essentially all riff from the concept of a fairy tale and each is only partially formed.
