Nous ne vieillirons pas ensemble
We Won’t Grow Old Together
An emotional, autobiographical drama from Pialat about a tempestuous love affair.
Dir Maurice Pialat
With Marlène Jobert, Jean Yanne, Christine Fabréga
Drawing on the break-up of his extra-marital relationship with a writer, Pialat made a searing semi-autobiographical drama that was a surprise box-office success in France. An arrogant, troubled filmmaker and his lover argue and fight, but can never completely tear themselves apart.The real-life tensions that arose during filming between the actors and their director produced two outstanding performances.
