For keeps
21 May 2009 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

This is a film I saw in 1968, being a young adult and have never forgotten. It's a shame it is not possible to find it on DVD anywhere, and I have checked shops in France, England and the USA. I'd love to have it for keeps. Possibly it is not or would not be everybody's cup of tea but it is a lesson of life with a wonderful performance by the great Sylvie. There are many European films, be them French, Spanish, Italian, German, et al, that are great works of art and of thought that are not marketed even in their own countries. One wonders why. Let's hope one day it will easier to find them, to enjoy them again and to be able to teach their quality to younger people.
