One of the best french Films of the 70's
22 October 2004 | by (Cologne, Germany) – See all my reviews

Yes, i loved this film from the first minute on. One big reason might be the wonderful, melancholic, touching and fabulous soundtrack by Francis Lai, which i didn't managed to get yet. It's a real shame, that this masterpiece of film music is not available anymore. And for the ending : very touching !!! Knowing, that Ryan had cancer when filming makes the ending more touching. I wish, this film and its soundtrack gets the treatment it deserves (Criterion Collection anyone ?!). A nice uncut (french version is uncut, the German one is cut) version on DVD and a soundtrack re-release and i'm in heaven !
