    I was going to make a wisecrack that the director filmed this movie partly in color and partly in black and white because he ran out of money, but then I read somewhere that that was the reason given by the director. There certainly is no other rational explanation, other than the fact that foreign directors often do stuff that is weird in order to distinguish their films from Hollywood productions, otherwise they would come out looking clearly inferior. By being weird, they create an apples-and-oranges situation. The movie also jumps back and forth in time to an unnecessary degree, which seems to have confused even the director himself. For example, when the man and woman are first getting to know each other, they meet each other's children. Later, when they are living together (or, at least, he has the key to her place), she asks him, "When will I meet your son?" Perhaps these complications in style and logic are needed to disguise the fact that not very much happens.

    Although cheaply-made, this is a touching romantic film from France. Aimee won the Golden Globe for Best Actress-Drama as a widowed production assistant who meets and falls in love with Trintignant's race car driver. Won Academy Awards for Best Foreign-language Film and Best Original Screenplay, using B/W and coloured cinematography to reveal the painful pasts of the two leads that prevent them from fully expressing themselves. A great story with sensual performances makes this an unforgettable film. I give it a 4.5/5.

  • Thanks TCM

    Please give me a CLUE as to why one of the best foreign films is scheduled to play IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.No alternate viewings listed during normal hours.......

  • Always a pleasure to watch.

    I love this movie! The only aspect of it I find questionable is its theme song. Whenever I was homebound from elementary school due to illness, my mother was guaranteed to have the radio on to a station with a beautiful music format. Sure enough, it always played the theme song to this film. To this day I still consider it similar to water torture. The best tune in this movie, one of the finest you'll ever hear, is actually "Aujourd'hui C'est Toi." That's the one that accompanied the motorsport parts.I should mention there are also two subtly humorous scenes. One had the two protagonists riding in a car during a rainstorm and listening to the world's most depressing newsreader on the radio. The other was the stop at a service station when Jean-Louis was returning to Anne after participating in the Monte Carlo Rally. Conveying his message while using only the barest minimum of words, the attendant balked at pumping gas into the car until Jean-Louis extinguished his cigarette.
