A Feature film by Alain Resnais

Produced by Entreprise Générale Cinématographique (EGC), Les Films Ariane

Release in France : 05/09/1984


    Elisabeth and Simon have been deeply in love for two months when Simon momentarily dies, but comes back to life. Simon does not want any further medical tests, but the couple are forced to grapple with the possibility of his death.
