And Now My Love ★★½ 1974 (PG)

A French couple endeavor to maintain their romance despite interfering socio-economic factors—she's a millionaire and he's an ex-con filmmaker. Keller plays three roles spanning three generations, as Lelouch invests autobiographical details to invent a highly stylized, openly sentimental view of French folks in love with love. Along the way he comments on social mores and changing attitudes through the years. Dubbed in English. 121m/C VHS, DVD . FR Marthe Keller, Andre Dussollier, Carla Gravina; D: Claude Lelouch; W: Claude Lelouch. L.A. Film Critics '75: Foreign Film.
