We Won't Grow Old Together
Maurice Pialet, 1972
- Jean (Jean Yanne) and Catherine (Marlène Jobert) are a couple whose every move charts an advancement deeper into an emotional warzone. Theirs is the classic and the tragic case of an emotional abuse centred around a perplexing, but powerful, interdependency. As the moment approaches wherein the relationship can no longer perpetuate its cycle of weekend holidays, apologies, and submissions,
Maurice Pialat discloses all the ways in which the future might be at once liberated, and enslaved, by the past.
Based on a novel by Pialat himself, and on the trauma of his own personal life in the years leading up to the film,
Nous ne vieillirons pas ensemble was a smash-hit at the time of its release, and retains its power up to the present day.
The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Pialat’s second feature masterpiece for the first time on DVD in the UK.
Little pieces from the accompanying 32-page booklet:
I never really knew where I was going in life and I especially had no sense of time passing. I'm that way again today, and if I go back a few years, I realise I was the same way then, and further back still, the same... Is this a way of not growing old? Time has little hold on someone who doesn't feel it pass...
- THE OPENING PARAGRAPH OF PIALET'S NOVEL,,, NOUS NE VIEILLIRONS PAS ENSEMBLE
One day I turned 45. But I felt 25
So what did you do?
I made Nous ne vieillirons pas ensemble
For that reason alone?
No, for a bunch of other ones too.
For the same reasons that led you to make L'Amour esiste and L'Enfance-nue?
Without a doubt. You're on to something. All those titles are cowards.
You mean traitors?
Yes, they betrayed me. They expose fifteen years of silence... Maybe fifteen years of childhood...
