A man and a woman meet by accident on a Sunday evening at their children's boarding school. Slowly the widower and widow reveal themselves to each other, with each revelation hidden by a misperception. They become closer and closer, until she reveals that she can't have a lover because her husband's memory is still far too strong. Much of the film is told wordlessly in actions or through hearing each person's thoughts.Written by

Some Sundays start well and end badly. It's hard to believe- It's crazy to refuse happiness. If I had to go through this again, What would I do? Is there anything else I could do? To see her for months on end as a pal. What happens? You end up being pals, maybe. She wired, 'I love you.' Admit it boy, you just don't understand women.

A 'special' love storywith very nice musicnot told in a logical way
That night Anne Gauthier (Aimée) missed her train Jean-Louis Duroc (Trintignant) offered her a ride back to Paris Both had their children at the Deauville boarding school She has a girl named Françoise and he has a boy named Antoine Jean-Louis knew that her husband was a stuntman who had a tragic accident She knew that he was married and his wife commits suicide
Claude Lelouch begins his sensitive exploration on that boat ride where there was a completely different energy in the air, where the sea was seen alive in all its many mood and through intentions looks, and lingering hands he let us know that yes, something was beginning to happen between Anne and Jean-Louis On that wonderful beachand through long shotswe see the couple with their children walking, playing, running with hundreds of seagulls screaming all around
There was a great chemistry between Aimée and Trintignant in "A Man and a Woman" The attraction between the two stars really resonated Aimée was very sweet and gorgeous as a woman, but her constant incursions into the past left her experience with more sorrow than joy
Trintignant was charming His acting extremely natural When he received Anne's telegram he left his elegant dinner and took his car driving hundreds of kilometers to join Anne and be with the children
Lelouch captures breathtaking shots of Deauville's spectacular beach We all remember the unforgettable scene of the man walking alike as his dog
The film won Oscars for Best Original Screenplay and Best Foreign Language Film
