Claude Lelouch’s sentimental sequel to his legendary and immortal love story, 1966 Palme d’Or winner A Man and a Woman is a poignant walk down memory lane. Lelouch re-unites his two stars, Anouk Aimée and Jean-Louis Trintignant, 53 years after the two screen lovers electrified audiences worldwide (Oscar for Best Foreign Film 1966). The romantic on-screen liaison was so unexpected and dazzling that it turned audience perceptions of romantic love upside down.
Anne Gauthier and Jean-Louis Duroc have known each other for a lifetime in the script and Lelouch brings them back for an on-screen reunion. Jean-Louis’s mind wanders a bit, but Anne is remarkably youthful. Will old flames flicker back to life?
