5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for the ORIGINAL FRENCH version October 5, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
And this ain't it. But it's all we got for now, so heh.
"Un Homme et une Femme" holds up quite well some 32 years hence. Younger viewers may not realize that a lot of the montage devices and tricks that may seem 'dated' were actually popularized and/or invented herein by Claude Lelouch. I actually found myself rewinding to watch the color sections a couple of times, especially the mid-film sequence scored to Francis Lai's achingly sentimental and lovely "Stronger than Us" as Anouk Aimee (the world's most beautiful woman) and Jean-Louis Triginant stroll the Deauville shore and muse on art and life. The tinting and grain of those sections - the boat ride, Anouk remembering her dead husband (Pierre Barouh) as he sings "Samba Saravah" to her - set a trend I pine for again.
The story? Well, thin, even by today's lughead standards (widower and widow fall in love against some lovely French scenery shot in winter), but it's obvious Lelouch was going for something that was quite new, then: a marriage of film and music that was not a "musical" per se, but rather, the forerunner of MTV (well, MTV with a soul, let's say). Cut loosely but thankfully not on-the-beat to Lai's jazzy/lush mid-60s score, Lelouch suceeds darn well. The freeze-frame ending cued to the final electric piano note, and that moment when Anouk Aimee pauses for the longest time and says to Jean-Louis, "You never told me about your wife", are two of my favorite filmgoing moments.
"Un Homme et une Femme" is emblematic of a world-view which I, for one, wish would take hold of folks again and topple the psychotic-trash-nihilistic consciousness now dominating pop culture.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Man and A Woman September 8, 2000
By Laurie
Format:VHS Tape
The original movie, which was the winner of the '66 Cannes Film Festival,was MAGNIFICENT in its original language. The English ruins the effect of the entire enxperience. Seeing it in French (with English subtitles)was magic along with the French lyrics to the accompanying music. The terrible "tonality" of the voices on the dubbed version cheapens the experience and makes it a totally different, flatter movie, and not nearly as romantic and sensual.
Please advise viewers if a new version containing French language (English Subs), and French music comes along. That would be wonderful!!!! Because I, for one, have NEVER forgotten the romance of this movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cut! December 9, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
That's what the editors of this version did - they cut at least two of the most moving scenes from the original French language, English sub-titled edition. Additional scenes were jaggedly removed, often disrupting the natural and graceful flow of the original. Was this an edited-for-television version? Why not offer the original movie theater version? That 5-star masterpiece was reduced to 3-stars by the hacked editing and average dubbing. If you've not seen it before, you will enjoy this version much more.

5.0 out of 5 stars The NON-DUBBED version of this film is MAGNIFIQUE! October 6, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
"A Man and a Woman" is beautiful and magnificent...in French, with English subtitles. I must also recommend Francis Lai's haunting soundtrack, which is incredibly romantic. The English-dubbed version of the film, however, is downright irritating and ultimately disappointing. Please make the subtitled version available soon. Merci.

5.0 out of 5 stars The original FRENCH is back, with the DVD release! March 22, 2003
Format:DVD
The DVD has just been released (March 18, 2003)
For those of us who love the film, but suffered for many years with the dubbed English, the French language (with subtitles) is back! Anouk and Jean-Louis never sounded more romantic. The color, the music, and the sounds are fantastic, just as we remember them from the theater release.
For those who hate subtitles and require English, the solution is just a menu click away.
Indulge yourself- Order the DVD and retire your beloved, ragged VHS.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless. April 12, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Claude Lelouch's *A Man and a Woman* is the movie to be condemned for inaugurating what has become one of the worst cliches in movies: the "falling-in-love-while-romantic-music-plays-on-the-score montage". You know it by heart: the couple walking on the beach, laughing at each other over coffee, staring dreamily at each other in bed, ad nauseum, while sappy music tinkles on in the background. Still, that's no reason to despise this groundbreaking and hugely influential 1966 film. As it was the first to use this romantic convention in the movies, *A Man and a Woman* should be cut some slack; and in any case, the thousands of directors who have copied this device have not remotely approached the level of skill, poignancy, and sheer manic intensity to get as many different shots as possible that Lelouch displays here. This film is as clear testimony as any to the enduring influence of the New Wave on cinema. Beyond its historic significance, it's a damn engrossing, romantic picture, featuring a couple we come to like very much. The Man, superbly underplayed by Jean-Louis Trintignant, is a race-car champion and widower with a young son in elementary school. The Woman, a never-lovelier Anouk Aimee, is what they used to call a "script-girl" (i.e., production assistant) in the movie biz: she's a widow with a young daughter of her own who attends the same school that Trintignant's boy attends. Inevitably, the parents become acquainted and fall tentatively in love. As we watch Aimee and Trintignant struggle to balance career, parenting, and a new chance at romance, it becomes clear that we're watching a love story about and for grown-ups. Read more ›
