Storyline

An industrialist (Joseph Cotton) and a pianist (Joan Fontaine) meet on a trip and fall in love. Through a quirk of fate, they are reported dead in a crash though they weren't on the plane. This gives them the opportunity to live together free from their previous lives. Unfortunately, this artificial arrangement leads to greater and greater stress. Eventually the situation collapses when they come to pursue their original, individual interests without choosing a common path. Written by Mark Carroll

A must see for all Romantics around the world
3 November 1999 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

This is my favourite movie of all time.

I often watch this with friends and family who have never seen the movie and I dare not tell the ending. It is very romantic and at the same time a bit sappy as hollywood Romance movies go.

This movie along with An Affair To Remember and Imitation of Life will have most of you in tears. A great 3-pack weekend tear-jerker selection.

September Affair is unique in the sense that even though the plot line seems far fetched...It actually could happen and has probably crossed a few peoples minds at that. This movie is not to be missed.

Do not Rent this one, purchase it and I assure you you will watch this one over, and over again. I give this movie a 10 out of 10.

Enjoy all you lovers.

Peter.
