Format: DVD
I never would have visited France (especially the hilly Parisian town of Montmartre, where Aimee's Woman lives) or taken a second chance on love, on loving a man again, had I not viewed "Un Homme et Une Femme." I first rented the movie in my mid-20s and re-rented it (including the English-dubbed version on VHS, which I do not like) countless times before finally purchasing it.
Monsieur Lelouch's cinematic narrative technique is poignant in his artful use of black-and-white scenes to display the bare-naked truth of humanity and, especially, his use of vividly colorful scenes to capture haunting memories. How affecting are these sunlight-filled and music-laden memories, from the man's and the woman's quotidian moments with their now-dead loves-of-a-lifetime, as well as recollections of those spouses' demise to the couple's idyllic moments with their children in the resort town of Deauville. You might recall the "family's" day trip on "the boat" and the stroll along the shore. The film's contrasts are lovely, including: b&w vs. color; innocence (the pair's children) vs. experience (the pair themselves), etc. The most obvious counterpoint is male and female: Man vs. Woman; Boy vs. Girl {i.e., Antoine vs. Francoise). I also love the pair's stark reserve (think of the lack of emotion after they finish making love at the Normandy Hotel) vs. their effusive emotion (think about the uncontrolled happiness when Trintignant's Man drives many miles from the Montecarlo race, after unexpectedly winning and receiving a telegram from Aimee's Woman ending with, "I love you," to find his femme. When he does find her, with the help of the children's boarding-school teacher, she is playing with les enfants on the beach.

The movie details a widow and a widower looking for romance by a chance of encountering one another. Both are dealing with the loss of a spouse. The movie goes back and forth into time as to how their spouses have died and she has this image of him being a pimp when he doesn't go into detail about his career. He doesn't want to instill fear into her. She lost her husband on a movie set. One minute the movie is in black and white. The next minute, it's in color, like their love for each other. It may seem boring to some viewers because they expect something more dramatizing to happen or some sort of sexual tension and passion which is not what the movie is about. The movie without the excessiveness was just fine and easy to watch. I wasn't bored watching the movie. The fashion and makeup of the sixties was cool.

"A Man and a Woman" is the quintessential French movie from the 60's. It's a love story (of course), it has a soundtrack that you'll recognize immediately, it's got Anouk Aimee.
The plot-if it could even be called that-is simple. A man and a woman meet at their children's boarding school. The man drives the woman back to Paris...and then back and forth to the school again the next Sunday. During these drives, they disclose their tragic, painful pasts: both have recently been widowed. Eventually they become closer and closer until they can almost read each other thoughts. The movie is about many small moments-flashbacks to their respective marriages, their glamourous jobs (she's a movie editor, he's a race car driver), their interactions with their children. The movie jumps from black and white to color, from present to past, from silence to that theme music.
Yes there are some schmaltzy moments...lots of running on the beach with the theme music under it. Still it is beautiful to look at, beautifully acted...and just so romantic!

Anouk Aimee is widowed, and so is Jean-Louis Trintignant, who lost his wife to suicide - and the film follows their chance meetings, before, during, and after they become aware of each other. Their lives dance a pas de deux mostly without touching - and so does the film. It's brilliant, an exploration of chance, life, fate, karma, whatever. Director Claude LeLouch scored big on this one, and about 20 yrs after I first saw the movie, certain scenes are still seered on my retina.
Marvelous.

By Yute the Beaute on Oct. 9 2003
Format: DVD
First time I watched this film, it was forced on me by my French teacher who was madly in love with this film. I am sure he meant well, but, despite the simplicity of the storyline, it was a torture for a student who was only two weeks into his first French course.
I returned to the film later (with subtitle, mercifully) and kept coming back for more ever since. The film is a very intimate study of the relationship between man and woman. There are items in the film that dates it firmly in the 60's (like songs and clothes) but the charm of this film is timeless as it deals with that "Fundamental Thing" Sam was singing about in Casablanca.
My French is still bad but it is not the film's fault.

I have never seen a movie that depicts such tenderness not only between lovers but between a parent and child. The music and scenery are simply gorgeous. There is not much plot here - the magic in this movie lies in the characters and the atmosphere created by the music and the scenery of the northern coast of France. The DVD has added features including a documentary on the making of the film and an interview with the director, Claude Lelouche. This movie is so timeless - it's hard to believe it was made almost forty years ago. The movie won the Oscar for Best Foreign Film and Best Screenplay. It certainly ranks as one of the most romantic movies ever made.
