Nous Ne Vieillirons Pas Ensemble (1972, FRA/ITA) C-106m. M D: Maurice Pialat. Starring Marlène Jobert, Jean Yanne, Christine Fabréga, Patricia Perangeli, Jacques Galland, Maurice Risch. Dreary drama about cameraman Yanne and his lover Jobert, who quarrel, break up and make up throughout this movie. Every-day situations between lovers are frustratingly drawn out and nothing, absolutely nothing is made interesting here. Reminiscent of some boring Liz Taylor dramas of the 1970s, only without the glamour. Written by the director, based on his novel. Photography by the great Luciano Tovoli is as bland as the rest of the film. Still, this won Yanne the Best Actor prize in Cannes! English titles: BREAK-UP, WE WON'T GROW OLD TOGETHER.
