This autobiographical film from French master Maurice Pialat (À nos amours, Loulou) is the harrowing account of a relationship in breakdown, with Jean Yanne (who won Best Actor at Cannes for this role) as a domineering and philandering filmmaker whose behavior threatens to destroy his relationships with both his wife and mistress. Painfully intimate and marked by Pialat’s trademark blend of naturalism and psychologically penetrating formalistic experimentation, We Won’t Grow Old Together is a wrenching account of emotional masochism. (1972, 102 min, 35mm)
