Movie Info

Claude Lelouch's romantic drama Toute une Vie chronicles three different love affairs over three generations during the 20th century. Marthe Keller and Charles Denner portray different members of the families in each of the generations. The stories involve a cameraman's son who suffers and survives internment in a concentration camp in World War II, and his daughter, who marries a man who begins adulthood as an ex-convict and a scoundrel but gradually matures and becomes a well-respected filmmaker living in New York. Each section of the film utilizes a style of filmmaking that is associated with the time period being portrayed. Lelouch earned an Academy Award nomination (along with co-screenwriter Pierre Uytterhoeven) for his screenplay in 1975. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Toute Une Vie (And Now My Love)

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

Mr. Lelouch, of course, gives amour its due in And Now My Love, but this is not nearly so impressive as his perceptive, often touching portraits of three eras and their principals.

Jan 15, 2008 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

If Lelouch's sensibilities are too flimsy to substantiate his quasi-epic ambitions, the film nevertheless offers some cozy comforts and more than a few inside filmmaking jokes.

Jan 15, 2008 | Full Review…

A film so sentimental and implausible that its emotional indulgence almost seems avant-garde.
