Un homme et une femme Directed by Claude Lelouch, 1966.
With Anouk Aimée & Jean-Louis Trintignant
In French with English subtitles
A man and a woman meet at their children’s boarding school in Deauville. The woman misses her train, and the man—a racecar driver—offers her a lift back to Paris. Following the ins and outs of their relationship from chance meeting to hesitant friendship to heart-wrenching affair, this poignant drama delights in the small moments that bring two people together. Sweeping music and breathtaking camerawork paint a visceral picture of the whirlwind of emotions felt over the course of a romance.
The film won the Palme d’or in 1966 and two Academy Awards in 1967, for Best Foreign-Language Film and Best Original Screenplay, with two additional nominations: Best Actress in a Leading Role (Anouk Aimée) and Best Director (Claude Lelouch).
