Cheeky chappy Michael Crawford manages to keep his jolly-o-meter under control for once in a serious role as a car salesman out to bed the beautiful wife of aristocrat Curt Jurgens. She's played by the preposterously proportioned (and acting impaired) Genevieve Gilles, whose frequent nude scenes must have pushed the limits of the GP rating in America. Francis Lai's score is breathtakingly beautiful, and it's a shame that Henri Decae's cinematography is compromised by the pan and scan print currently airing on the Fox Movie Channel. Approach with low expectations and you may enjoy Hello-Goodbye--though fans of late '60s pop psychedelic cinema will be more enthusiastic than others.
