Half a century later
26 May 2019 | by FrenchEddieFelsonSee all my reviews

I admit having approached this film with a negative a priori, considering that it would probably be the tenth film in a row directed by Claude Lelouch which deserves the qualifier of « it's the film too much... again ». Strongly based on his Oscar-winning masterpiece Un homme et une femme (1966), Claude Lelouch offers us a touching and tender work and finds back this sensitivity that I thought was lost: memories and reality all intermingle and create a mesmerizing atmosphere, thanks to Anouk Aimée and Jean-Louis Trintignant, both outstanding and moving. Moreover, Anouk Aimée is still gorgeous. As a synthesis: 5/6 of 10.
