Film about love of men and women of three different generations.
4 November 2000 | by Miro-2See all my reviews

Using the same, three times repeating dialogue - dramatic conversation between man and woman - Jerzy Skolimowski from Poland, Slovak director Peter Solan and Czech director Zbynìk Brynych shot three different stories. The result was an extraordinary experiment in the world cinema, which we can call an insight in the relationships of men and women of different age groups, an analysis of love and marriage of those who are at the beginning, in the middle or going towards the end of their life.
