Movie Info

Not to be confused with the Bo Derek atrocity of the same name, Claude Lelouch's film covers half a century. Lelouch concentrates on several generations of music lovers, all hailing from different nations and cultural backgrounds. Each of the principal actors plays multiple characters, an intriguing but ultimately confusing gimmick.

Critic Reviews for Les uns et les autres

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

  • At one point the narrator berates history for lacking imagination; history, as revealed here, certainly lacks taste, and its imagination could be toned up, but there's no shortage of silly entertainment.

  • [A] disjointed, incoherent mess.

  • An important cinematic work which celebrates the human imagination as triumphant.

  • Impossible to synopsize coherently, it doesn't so much tackle themes as lay them out for scrutiny and musical embellishment.

  • The songs, written by Michel Legrand and Francis Lai, are addictive in the best French pop manner. A few of the dance sequences are spectacular. Only when the scene shifts to a subplot not involving music does the movie get bogged down.

  • Lelouch doesn't have a handle on his subject.
