This autobiographical film from French master Maurice Pialat (A nos amours) is the harrowing account of a relationship in breakdown starring Jean Yanne (who won the best actor award at Cannes for this role). Official Selection: New York Film Festival, 1972.
“This austerely devastating 1972 drama about a long-running but ultimately unhappy love affair has been hard to see for some time, so don’t pass up this chance to catch it on the big screen. Be warned, though: It’s deeply upsetting, featuring the kind of emotional brutality we just don’t see in movies anymore.” —New York Magazine
“An opportunity for a new audience to discover one of the great lions of international cinema.” —The Village Voice
“A uniquely brilliant filmmaker.” —Film Comment
“Pialat’s highly economical, surprisingly form-minded mirthless comedy pays impressive emotional dividends.” —J. Hoberman
