In Paris during the summer of 1914 a succession of brief liaisons begins and ends with a soldier and a tart, but on the way moves humourously and sometimes poignantly through a fascinating panorama of society and of attitudes to love.

This was Anna Karina's first attempt at writing and directing a movie. It's an admirable, courageous debut. Anna plays Julie Andersen, a free-spirited, hippi-esh girl. Michel Lancelot is the fuddy-duddy professor who bumps into her. They fall in love. Drawn into her world, he falls into drugs. The movie is a bit reminiscent of "A Star is Born" wherein one character descends as the other one ascends. Francois Truffaut reportedly praised this movie,a positive response from one of Anna's dear friends. Anna is enchanting. She also sings on the soundtrack, including tunes by Serge Gainsbourg. Anna later co-wrote the script of "Last Song" with husband No. 4 Dennis Berry. She is set to direct her 2nd movie this year in Montreal. I pray that a DVD version of "Vivre Ensemble" will be released soon.
