Claude Sautet: A French Classic


Three friends face mid-life crises. Paul is a writer who’s blocked. François has lost his ideals and practices medicine for the money; his wife grows distant, even hostile. The charming Vincent, everyone’s favorite, faces bankruptcy, his mistress leaves him, and his wife wants a divorce.

Our take

Next in our retrospective devoted to Claude Sautet is one of the French director’s mega-hits at home. A trio of middle-aged men (Yves Montand, Michel Piccoli, Serge Reggiani) face mid-life crises in a prototypical drama of the era. With Gérard Depardieu as the young man they all wish they could be!
