Jean-Louis Duroc:Some Sundays start well and end badly. It's hard to believe- It's crazy to refuse happiness. If I had to go through this again, What would I do? Is there anything else I could do? To see her for months on end as a pal. What happens? You end up being pals, maybe. She wired, 'I love you.' Admit it boy, you just don't understand women.See more »

The pleasure is all mine, 25 August 2004
Author: Boyo-2

I'm a total sucker for foreign films from the 1960s, even though I have not seen as many as I should.

This is one of the best, in my experience. Nothing really happens, but the chemistry between the leads, the strangely non-nominated soundtrack and the overall atmosphere make it completely memorable and worthwhile. I am glad it did well at the Oscars and that its gained a certain amount of 'classic' status. There are probably critics who didn't think it was a big deal, too.

Several of the scenes seemed improvised, like the one where the leads are in a café with their children.

Can't wait to see it again. 10/10.
