Whatever else, Lelouch must have acquired a super tan making this successor to Un Homme et une Femme, so generously does he allow the sun to dazzle his camera lens. An unsalvageably meretricious melodrama (Montand's TV reporter torn between patient wife Girardot and fashion model Bergen) played out against the glamorous backdrops of downtown Manhattan and up-country Vietnam, it is rendered even more preposterous by the pretentious dialogue, inept performances, cross-eyed cross-cutting, and a score by Francis Lai more suited to a hotel lounge than a film.
