Trivia

To prepare for her role as Lillian, a seriously ill character, actress Marthe Keller went on an exercise regime of almost Olympic proportions. Reportedly, Keller got up at six o'clock each morning, ate green lettuce, swam in thermal baths, drank carrot juice, hiked on mountain trails, and played tennis for an hour each day, then at night, sometimes had a second game of tennis right up to dusk time at nine o'clock. Keller lost ten pounds in weight and as such could no longer fit into her American wardrobe. See more »

Lost and Forgot.. but a real GEM!
11 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

Al Pacino is BOBBY DEERFIELD in this touching and moving film about a race car driver in a indifferent marriage who falls in love with Lillian (Marthe Keller). Deerfield buries his feelings and forgets his past until a reckless and passionate woman (Keller) who also lives in death's shadow shows him life's possibilities to the fullest. Beautiful scenes shot in France and Italy make this film even more romantic as well. As Pacino said during the filming of Bobby Deerfield, "I might have been closer to that character, what he was going through, than any character I've played". Why this film is not out on dvd is beyond me, it is fantastic. Funny and touchingly romantic. This was during Pacino's best years.
