A Retrospective of the films of Francois Truffaut
The Man Who Loved Women (L'homme qui amait les femmes) (1977, 120 mins.)
Witty, incisive and masterfully narrated, The Man Who Loved Women is one of Truffaut's most entertaining yet introspective and melancholic films. Read by many as a thinly disguised stand-in for Truffaut, recently deceased Bertand (Charles Denner), is a man who simply couldn't keep his mind off of women. In The Man Who Loved Women, Truffautmixes comedy with scenes of gentle poignancyto make profound comments about love, sex, fidelity, and the underlying differences between men and women.
