Stylish yet inscrutable...
19 July 2010 | by moonspinner55See all my reviews

Beautifully-filmed though extremely slight movie about a soundtrack composer (played by Jean-Paul Belmondo) and his love affair with an attractive actress (Annie Girardot) who is already married. Esteemed French director Claude Lelouch always seems to know just where to put his roving camera. Coming up with several amazing set-pieces and artistically delicious shots, the filmmaker tantalizes the viewer with eye candy, however his flights-of-fancy in general are rather juvenile--they dilute what's happening in the "real world". Another handicap is the screenplay, with central characters who aren't terribly interesting. Still, what a treat to find young Farrah Fawcett in the cast (as a foxy blonde starlet). Filmed in both French and English, with fascinating location work all over the American Southwest. ** from ****
