We Won't Grow Old Together

Directed by Maurice Pialat | Written by Maurice Pialat

This powerful romantic drama examines the final period of a long and ultimately unhappy affair. Jean (Jean Yanne) is an unpleasant, domineering man. Though he still lives with his wife, their marriage has been over for a long time. For six years, Jean has had an affair with the much-younger Catherine (Marlene Jobert). The dynamic of their relationship is moving it toward disintegration also, but Catherine resists it. This movie is based on Pialat's own autobiographical novel.

" We won't grow old together is a fiercely impassioned, impulsively modernist melodrama"

- Richard Brody, The New Yorker
