Starring Audrey Hepburn, Albert Finney, Georges Descrières
Infused with a fresh, French New Wave–inspired energy, this effervescent road movie follows successful architect Mark (Albert Finney) and his wife, Joanna (Audrey Hepburn), as they embark on a journey in their white Mercedes roadster from Northern France to the Riviera. Along the way, the couple examine their twelve-year relationship in a series of wry and illuminating flashbacks—from the beginning of their love affair to the early years of their marriage to the events that led to their subsequent infidelities. The superb performances, ultra-chic sixties fashions, and innovative time-hopping structure come together in an at once joyous and deeply honest account of marital strife.
