Un Homme et une Femme / A Man and a Woman, Claude Lelouch

TRINTIGNANT / LELOUCH

(1966, In French with English Subtitles, 102 min)

Rewarded by the Palme d’Or and the Best Foreign Film Oscar, this movie directed by Claude Lelouch portrays the blossoming love between a widow and a widower who meet on a Sunday evening at their childrens’ boarding school. This relationship, however passionate, stays complicated and tortured by the memories of their late spouses. Love meets grief, as this couple navigates their feelings in this 1966 romantic drama.

He was shy, but it’s shyness that made Jean-Louis Trintignant an actor valued by the best directors for what he held back rather than what he gave away. He was shy and women loved him. His first wife was the actress Stéphane Audran; his affair with Brigitte Bardot on the set of And God Created Woman directed by Roger Vadim, Bardot’s husband, made him famous. He went on to work with Chabrol, Lelouch, Truffaut, Bertolucci, and be paired with Romy Schneider, Anouk Aimée, Juliette Binoche, Fanny Ardant and many more…He even made a spaghetti western! His other passion was car racing and he survived the Mans 24 hours race. His life had its share of tragedy, losing his first daughter, Pauline, at 10 months, and his other daughter, the actress Marie Trintignant, a victim of domestic violence. He made very few films after this tragedy, one of them the much-awarded Amour, by Michael Haneke.
