Storyline

Robert Colomb, a famous TV newscaster, is married to Catherine, but is continually unfaithful. He is about to replace his current mistress, Mireille, with Jacqueline when he meets, and becomes fascinated with Candice. He takes her along on an assignment in Kenya and later establishes an "arrangement" with her in Amsterdam. When he tells Catherine about the affair, she is silent. He is assigned to Viet Nam, tells Candice their affair is over and, to his astonishment, discovers that is more than acceptable to her as she as tired of him. Returning from a Vietnamese prison he decides to return also to Catherine, but discovers she has made a new life for herself. He ponders whether he should break into her life again, rekindle their old love or just disappear from her life. While he is pondering, Catherine---a big hand for the little lady---makes the decision for this selfish and conceited ass. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

A forgoten movie about Vietnam
9 November 2001 | by (Indiana, USA) – See all my reviews

Vivre pour vivre is a great movie. Under the direction of Claude Lelouche, Yves Montand was at his best. The music of Francis Lai, music writer of "Un homme et une femme", "Love Story" among other famous movies wrote a music melody for each of the main actors of the movie. The moments of silences when accompanied by the photography and the music tell more than what words can describe. In the background of a love story is a frame of a war. The atrocities and the protests against the war in Vietnam are evident. Unfortunately we do not see this movie on the TV screens in the USA.
