Arguably Stanley Donen’s masterpiece, and undoubtedly one of the most stylistically influential films of the 60s.
— Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader

Stylistically inspired by the French New Wave and taking place over a series of non-sequential road trips through the French countryside, Donen (Singin' in the Rain, Bedazzled) chronicles the 12-year relationship between Audrey Hepburn and Albert Finney and their far-from-perfect marriage.

Hepburn and Finney are wonderful together - breezily accompanied by a Henry Mancini score.
