A COEUR JOIE aka Head Over Heels
(1967/French/color) 100 minutes
Starring: Brigitte Bardot, Laurent Terzieff, Jean Rochefort.
Too old to be a gamine yet not old enough for matronhood, Bardot is the ideally cast leading lady as she plays a thirtysomething beauty who finds herself torn between two desirable lovers. The film's alternate English-language title, Two Weeks in September, symbolically conveys the ambience of the film: Bardot is loved by a man much older than herself, and in turn falls in love with a man much younger than herself. All of the characters are old enough to know better than to enter into a menage a trois, yet this little fling may be the last chance for true happiness for at least two of the participants.
