This hopelessly convoluted romantic drama is contrived even by the standards of its director, Claude Lelouch, who long ago traded the intimacy of small-scale love stories (such as his Oscar-winning 1966 A Man and a Woman) for big-budget schmaltz. The erratic flow of the narrative may be the consequence of his decision to edit together two stand-alone stories about six love affairs, which crisscross in a Paris so antiseptically postcard perfect even its homeless are photogenic. The central relationship between two singers (one talented, the other not) justifies the inclusion of many vapid pop songs and an overly lush score by Lelouch mainstay Francis Lai. In French with subtitles. 103 min.
