A weak follow-up to Lelouch's A MAN AND A WOMAN, the flashy, pseudointellectual tale that achieved great commercial success, as well as critical acclaim at Cannes and an Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Film. LIVE FOR LIFE focuses on Montand, a television newsman, and his rocky marriage to

Girardot. He takes Bergen as a lover in Kenya, but upon returning to his Paris home, feels compelled to take Girardot on a second honeymoon. Bergen follows him to Paris and rekindles their affair. Montand confesses the affair to his wife, who then leaves him. He moves in with Bergen, but finds the

relationship unfulfilling, so he leaves for Vietnam to work on a news documentary. He returns to Paris to find Bergen has left for the States, and Girardot has found her independence. Girardot eventually takes him back, but their relationship has clearly changed. Lelouch's (as well as countless

other directors') interest in Vietnam was high, and that same year he contributed to the collective work LOIN DU VIET NAM.
