Like the viewer Gilles, from Paris, I have seen many times this film on late night TV when I was a teenager in the 1970's. It was one of my favorite film. More than 20 years later, I just saw it again on late night TV and I was surprise how I was familiar to all the jokes, the words, the acting, just like I was with a very old friend. This is a beautiful film! There's a sparkle to it that makes it unforgettable. Also, I think that the caracter Benjamin, played by singer Jacques Brel, looks a lot like his wonderful songs. Brel was never a great actor, but here, he seems to play himself in a very warm way. The rest of the cast is also unique. Now, I have this on tape and I will see my old friend anytime I want.
