Personal tastes change with time
7 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

Loved it when it came in 1974, at 15 the fateful romance theme was intoxicating. Seeing it for the second time a few decades later, there was a slow stirring of emotions until the last 20 embarrassing minutes of which i had no recollection. Was relieved to read other user's reviews on this site, which explained the CD showed the unedited version. Now i know that i don't have Alzheimmer's. Heavy on the Schmaltz and platitudes, this time around i enjoyed rediscovering the songs of Gilbert Becaud. The lyrics of "Et maintenant" somehow sum up the movie and my relationship to it: the cherish memory of it has departed. At one point Sarah, (the main character) observes that one should not see again the people we have loved , and the same might apply to this movie.
