Le Grand Amour

Film, Drama

Time Out says

The diminishing returns apparent in Etaix's films, derived from Tati but without the touch of genius (unmistakable even if you find Tati unfunny), came to a head with this tiresome whimsy which chose the unfortunate year of 1968 in which to satirise French bourgeois morality with a gentle affection that turns into approbation. About a respectable married man who escapes into fantasies about his nineteen-year-old secretary, only to return to the status quo a contentedly wiser man, it is witless, self-indulgent and cloyingly sentimental.
