A French film that could not be American
8 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of my very favorite films and unforgettable to me. I tend to like movies about unusual lifestyles that work well and pose the question(to me): "Why should we be stuck with the 'nuclear family' model as the ideal?" It expands the limits. The movie flowed, it was sweet, the characters were engaging and the story engrossing. This movie has a French or European sensibility and I doubt that it would have been made in America and certainly not in the year of its release 1977. I would love to own it. Other movies of a similar nature were "Jules et Jim" & "Dona Herlinda & Her Son"(Mexican). Any info on how to obtain a VHS or DVD would be greatly appreciated.

I WROTE THE ABOVE IN OCT 2005 I AM WRITING AGAIN IN DEC 2007 TO ASK IF ANYONE KNOWS HOW I CAN SEE THIS FILM AGAIN. WHERE DID SOME OF THE OTHER COMMENTORS SEE IT.
