Claude Sautet: A French Classic


César (Yves Motand) is in love with Rosalie (Romy Schneider). But she isn’t making it easy, especially when her old flame enters the picture. Thus begins a ménage-à-trois, in which the two men compete for the affection of their impulsive lady love, only to slowly form their own grudging friendship.

Our take

A fiery romance turns to a love triangle in another underrated film by Claude Sautet. Revising a familiar scenario of doomed love and romantic indecision, Sautet executes his tale with wisdom and complexity in regards to gender and relationship politics. These are characters you won’t soon forget.
