Movie Summary
Love and the Frenchwoman (La Francaise et LAmour) concentrates on the nature of love by illustrating seven separate aspects of the emotion. In Childhood, 9-year old Pierre-Jean Vaillard suffers a traumatic experience when he takes his parents cabbage patch theory of conception too literally. In Adolescence, a little girl (Annie Sinigalla) constructs an elaborate fantasy world on the occasion of her first kiss. Virginity is a study in frustration, as betrothed couple Valerie Lagrange and Pierre Michel agonizingly await their wedding-night consummation of their ardor. Marriage finds a union ending almost before it begins as a pair of newlyweds (Marie-Jose Nat and Claude Rich) bicker all the way to their honeymoon rendezvous. Adultery allows husband Paul Meurisse the opportunity to calmly provide an object lesson to his wifes lover Jean-Paul Belmondo. In Divorce, a couple (Annie Girardot and Francois Pierer) find that its impossible to have a civilized breakup. And in A Woman Alone, bigamist Robert Lamoreaux meets his Waterloo in the forms of Martine Carol and Sylvia Montfort. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
