A timeless and beautiful drama despite the sparse English subtitles
9 May 2003 | by (New Jersey,U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This is a very fine film based on a novel of Francoise Sagan.A new love heals a man and lifts him from deep depression.Claudine Auger and Mark Porel are the lovers who meet in Limoges.They are ideal as Nathalie and Gilles.However,Porel appears to look very young in certain scenes.The director,Jacques Deray was excellent in slowly changing the mood as the couple settles down in Paris.I did have a small problem with following some conversations when the subtitles were too sparse.Of course,a French speaking viewer would do better.Although this film is 32 years old,it is as relevant right now.The music of Michel Legrand fit perfectly.
