Movie Info

Under the tutelage of one-time husband, director Roger Vadim, Jane Fonda plays the much-younger wife of stuffed-shirt millionaire Michel Piccoli. When Piccoli's handsome young stepson Peter McEnery comes to visit, Fonda is immediately smitten. When Piccoli forces McEnery into a marriage of convenience, she contemplates committing suicide over returning to her barren but lavish lifestyle. The Game is Over was inspired by the Emile Zola novel La Curee (the film's European title).more

Fonda gives a great performance in this movie, and it all seems to be going in a good direction, but it all falls apart in the end. If they could only have fixed the ending this would be a great movie.

Fonda is great in this movie, the story is set up nice, and it looks good, but the ending was disappointing to me.
