Product Description

France released, Blu-Ray/Region A/B/C DVD: LANGUAGES: French ( DTS-HD Master Audio ), French ( Mono ), English ( Subtitles ), French ( Subtitles ), WIDESCREEN (1.66:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Blu-Ray & DVD Combo, Cast/Crew Interview(s), Interactive Menu, Remastered, Scene Access, Short Film, Special Edition, Trailer(s), SYNOPSIS: Rare is the film in movie-history that can announce the entire movement of it's 'plot' with its title alone. But Pialat's second feature, Nous Ne Viellirons Pas Ensemble does exactly that, encapsulating all the turmoil, and the final end-point, of a couple who among themselves once made a commitment - and living together will come to make another one yet. Jean (Jeane Yanne, of Godard's Weekend) and Catherine (Marlene Jobert, of Godard's Masculin Feminin) are the couple whose every move charts an advancement deeper into an emotional warzone. Theirs is the classic and the tragic case of an emotional abuse centered around a perplexing, but powerful, interdependency. At last the point arrives that determines the relationship, with all its weekend holidays, its apologies and submissions, can go no further - and, in a final shot of genius, Pialat discloses all the ways in which the future might be at once liberated, and enslaved, by the past. Based on a novel by Pialat himself, and on the trauma of his own personal life in the years leading up to the film, Nous Ne Viellirons Pas Ensemble was a smash-hit at the time of its release - and yet is arguably one of the most upsetting films ever made. SCREENED/AWARDED AT: Cannes Film Festival, ...We Won't Grow Old Together (1972) ( Nous ne vieillirons pas ensemble ) ( L'amante giovane ) (Blu-Ray & DVD Combo) (Blu-Ray)

This is a very well observed film based on the director's own life; a sobering thought as he seems to have identified the weaknesses of both characters, presumably without being able to address them. The Anti-Hero is an abusive personality hooked up to a much younger woman while still living with his wife (a deracinated but caring performance). He needs her, but is afraid of that need and flails helplessly between a number of diastrous and inconsistent strategies to retain her (abusing her looks and intelligence, claiming he no longer cares, being jealous, being violent, being romantic)and in some cases repeating the same mixture several times just as ineffectively. The anti-heroine wants rid of him but only sometimes; she still wants him as a lover at one stage, then as a friend and then as nothing. The whole thing is very intimate and very sad, yet not that unrecognisable. I think the most interesting point to consider is when she finally decides it is finished; one can debate this for some time (though I have my firm view on the matter). If it is true that every relationship there is one who loves and one who is loved in this case the role seems to pass between the two central players, but always just at the wrong moment. A very painful film.

One thing that I missed was the age of the female lead. It was clear from the interviews that she was supposed to be much younger than the male lead, but Jobert was over thirty when the film was made (indeed her film mother looks like an older sister) which makes her ingenue behaviour appear slightly odd.

This French romantic drama adapted from a novel written by auteur director Maurice Pialat (1925-2003) himself, tells the story about a turbulent and passionate relationship between a man named Jean and a woman named Catherine.

Maurice Pialat`s second feature film "We Won`t Grow Old Together" is an uncommonly realistic and naturalistic love story, driven by its arduous narrative, fierce dialog and varied pace. As the story unfolds, Maurice Pialat moves closer and closer into the minds of the main characters, and with his expressive screenplay and acute camera work, he gives an in-depth and meticulous examination of a romantic relationship between a middle aged couple which is interpreted with authenticity and emotional endurance by Jean Yanne and Marlène Jobert. Like Ingmar Bergman, Mike Nichols, Lindsay Anderson and John Cassavetes, Maurice Pialat reaches a level of realism, intensity and honesty which is admirable to watch. This semi-autobiographical tour-de-force is a rigorous study of character. Recommended for those interested in auteur directors, French cinema, cinema history or romantic dramas from any period. The kind of movie that immediately captures the viewer.

For the time when the movies was produced, it must be a shocking movie.
The plot is about the separation of a love couple (a married man and his much younger girlfriend). The actors do a very well job, and sometimes its really painful to see that it is not possible for them to find to each other. It seems the love between them is gone. They are not able to talk to each other in a normal way. And at the end they break up.
However, its a great movie and worth to take a look.
