Some movie posters for the film featured a preamble that read: "She never knew he had an affair. He never knew he had a son. It could have meant the end of their marriage. Instead, it was the beginning of a love story". The last words of this marketing blurb were Love Story (1970) which was also the name of the earlier box-office hit movie written by the same source novelist Erich Segal. Also mentioned as a tagline under the title on the same movie poster was: "Based on the novel by Erich Segal, author of 'Love Story'". See more »
In the car, Jessica referred to her father's friend, Bernie, as Bernie Edwards. In the credits at the end of the movie, he's listed as Bernie Ackerman. See more »
This film was found to be very emotional upon its release in the U.K. All fine actors both Martin Sheen, Blythe Danner and the late David Hemmings all gave excellent performances, yet alone all the child actors especially the young french son Jean Claude who most people would have thought had the beginning of an excellent film career ahead of him. The location scenes in France were beautiful as was the music accompanying this.Yes a sad film but one that holds you especially with the traumatic scenes throughout. This film was in comparison very much on the lines of Love Story, and definitely better than the sequel to Love Story, entitled Feelings, which was of poor quality. I like many other people cannot understand why when there is so much rubbish being released on DVD when this excellent little sleeper of a film is begging for re-release.
