A Man and A Woman


...THE GRAND PRIZE - 20th Anniversary

International Film Festival, Cannes 1966...

...GRAND PRIZE of the

International Catholic Office of Cinema...

...and THE GRAND PRIZE of the

Superior Technical Film Commission...

...for Best Cinematography.

So the little girl started

to undress.

She got into her granny's bed.

The little girl was puzzled,

because her granny was acting funny.

Then she said:

"Oh, Grandma,

what big eyes you've got!"

And the granny said,

"All the better to see you with."

"Oh, Grandma,

what a long nose you've got!"

"All the better to smell you with!"

Then she said, "Oh, Grandma,

what long teeth you've got!"

"So much the better

to gobble you up with!"

And she gobbled her up!

- Did you like that story?

- No.

Why not?

It's sad.

What story would you like now?

Blue Beard.

Blue Beard?

Let's see.

Once upon a time...

A Man and A Woman


Pull up the top, please.

To the golf course.

No, to the go-carts.

No, the harbor.

No, to the golf course.

On second thought,

let's go to the go-carts.

You hurt me.

Did I? I'm sorry if I did!

- When I took your hand off the wheel?

- Yes.

I'm sorry.

- You've lost weight. Why's that?

- I don't know.

Don't you eat at school?

Don't you like the food?

Do you want some chocolate?

No, I want a cake.

A cake?

I don't know if we'll find

a bakery around here.

What sort of cake do you want?

Look what I've done now!

It's funny, isn't it?

These boots are nice.

- You want a pair like these?

- No, I want a cake.

You want a cake.

Hurry! Otherwise, I'll miss my train!

See you Sunday, darling.

Don't get cold.

Hurry, go inside, quick!

Go on! Bye. See you Sunday.

Come on, children!

We're in the middle of December,

and you drive with the top down.

It's not me. It's Antoine.

Blame Antoine!

Come and have supper, darling.

- There you are!

- Can I eat now?

Yes, darling. Come on.

Come on, Antoine.

I promise you that if you're good all

week, next Sunday we'll go boating.

No, tomorrow! Tomorrow!

Tomorrow, you work. Next Sunday!

Go and have supper.

There, now.

You spoil him, you know.

It's only once a week.

But he doesn't work very hard.

He's lazy.

Intelligent, but lazy.

He takes after me.

What are you going to do about it?

Antoine's been in your care

for two years. You've done wonders.

I'm certain you'll be able to do

even better.

In two years,

we haven't talked seriously.

I cannot talk seriously

to a pretty woman.

Be careful.

It's foggy this evening.

- Maybe the roads are icy.

- Ice?

There you are!

Do you often miss trains?


I'm not very punctual.

Do you always manage to get a lift?


I sleep in Deauville.

She doesn't work too well.

I see. She's intelligent, but lazy.

Who told you that?

What's her name?





That's nice.

Do you go regularly to the school?

Well, I come every weekend

when I'm not working.


I come every Saturday.

And Sunday too, sometimes.

May I?

Why, sure.

You mustn't laugh.

These songs made people cry in 1914.

Are you married?


You don't look married.

What does a married man look like?

What does your husband do?


Do you mean he's an actor?

Well, not quite.

He's more than an actor.

Funny job that, stuntman.

How does one meet a stuntman?

In a gully?

In Texas?

On a burning plane?

Am I close?


I give up.

Your story is like a soap opera.

Except for the stuntman,

it's not original.

I don't claim to be original.

You meet someone, marry, have a baby.

It happens all the time.

What can be original
