Fucky Film Review!

A Man and a Woman (Un Homme et Une Femme)

Claude Lelouch (1966)

This highly stylized film has some sticking power.  I watched it at my parents’ house, and when my mother walked by while it was playing she recognized the music – from when she saw it in the theater 40 years ago.  Discussing the plot is difficult without spoiling it, partly because of the editing (by which the past is revealed in flashback conversations in the form of musical interludes depicting the content of these conversations) and partly because very little happens.  Still I enjoyed watching it, and not just because the leading actors are so very beautiful, but mostly because of that.  I also like when he stops for gas on the way back to Paris after the rally.
