Wonderful love story
2 September 2003 | by Regi214See all my reviews

This is a gem of a movie! Beautifully scored by Georges Delerue, very well cast, I saw this back in the early 70's ... Since then, I've been looking high and low for it. Oskar Werner gives a memorable performance (in my estimation, his best), and Virginia Maskell is lovely as his dignified, understanding wife. I only wish this would be re-released, as trying to find a copy anymore seems impossible... It is timeless, lush, gorgeous.
