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 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 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 Amour Toujours May 9, 2004
Format:DVD
I never would have visited France (especially the hilly Parisian town of Montmartre, where Aimee's Woman lives) or taken a second chance on love, on loving a man again, had I not viewed "Un Homme et Une Femme." I first rented the movie in my mid-20s and re-rented it (including the English-dubbed version on VHS, which I do not like) countless times before finally purchasing it.

Monsieur Lelouch's cinematic narrative technique is poignant in his artful use of black-and-white scenes to display the bare-naked truth of humanity and, especially, his use of vividly colorful scenes to capture haunting memories. How affecting are these sunlight-filled and music-laden memories, from the man's and the woman's quotidian moments with their now-dead loves-of-a-lifetime, as well as recollections of those spouses' demise to the couple's idyllic moments with their children in the resort town of Deauville. You might recall the "family's" day trip on "the boat" and the stroll along the shore. The film's contrasts are lovely, including: b&w vs. color; innocence (the pair's children) vs. experience (the pair themselves), etc. The most obvious counterpoint is male and female: Man vs. Woman; Boy vs. Girl (i.e., Antoine vs. Francoise). I also love the pair's stark reserve (think of the lack of emotion after they finish making love at the Normandy Hotel) vs. their effusive emotion (think about the uncontrolled happiness when Trintignant's Man drives many miles from the Montecarlo race, after unexpectedly winning and receiving a telegram from Aimee's Woman ending with, "I love you," to find his femme. When he does find her, with the help of the children's boarding-school teacher, she is playing with les enfants on the beach.

This is indeed a great work that that exceeds all expectations - too bad Hollywood and Co. can't seem to come up with anything comparable since.
