John Frankenheimer's impossibly cryptic love story is the very definition of noble failure. Alan Bates is a writer living in the French countryside with wife Evans Evans and their three children. He meets the enigmatic Dominique Sanda in a Paris museum & they embark on a torrid love affair. What's real & what's fantasy is never clear and the film suffers for it. While the acting is all first rate, the blurry story-lines become tedious. Bates is great, blustery and full of life, well teamed with the morose Sanda (she hates her husband and wants out, or does she?). Nicholas Mosley's script has flights of fancy interspersed with scenes grounded very much in reality. A lot of it comes off as silly rather than fantastic. Still, Frankenheimer gets points for making a very different type of film. There is exceptional cinematography by Claude Renior and fine, unobtrusive music score by Michel Legrand.
