Academy Award winner for both Best Foreign Language Film and Best Writing, Story and Screenplay, A Man and A Woman, achieved a rare feat in being one of only a select few foreign language films to be nominated for Best Director and Best Actress in a Leading Role. The film also won the Golden Palm at the 1966 Cannes Film Festival for French filmmaker Claude Lelouch and received two Golden Globes.
Critically acclaimed around the world, A Man and A Woman stars Anouk Aimée (BAFTA for Best Foreign Actress) as a widowed script girl and Jean-Louis Trintignant as a racer who lost his wife to suicide. The film is a study of moments between the time they meet and the point at which they begin to read each other intuitively.
A Man and A Woman engages by cutting against conventional expectations of romance and presents many different ways of tracking a relationship in progress in an engaging fashion. Flashbacks fill in details on the pair's recent histories, while documentary style glimpses of a man and a woman at work in their highly charged jobs become a driving force towards the developments in love.
