'Live for Life'

Shows at 1 -3-5-'7-9
ABOUT A YEAR and a half ago, A Man and A Woman came to
Ann Arbor. Everyone saw it and came out with that happy feel-
ing of the complete love that the man and the woman experienced.
Now Claude Lelouch has created .a new love story, Live for Life,
showing at the Campus. Many will go see Live for Life, remark
upon the similarities to A Man and A Woman and there will be
no question as to which was better.
Film-making has entered the Ektachrome era; we see subtle
pastel shades of blue and red, skin tones are remarkably "real"
and no one will miss the vivid, contrasty look of color popular
during the fifties. Like A Man and A Woman, it excels in its use
of color, telephoto lenses which throw the background into out-
of-focus masses of moving color, marvelous transitionary devices
between scenes, and subjective movement of the camera. The
lyrical style of A Man and, A Woman is present again, as the flow-
ing pictures arid music make love to the eyes of the viewers.
Live for Life displays a more proficient use of this style but the
beauty, and it is beautiful, is lost because it is the beauty of,
A Man and A Woman used to create a different aesthetic whole.
THE STORY of Live for Life is of a French documentary
film-maker, his wife and his lovers. Yves Montand is depicted as
the French lover who surrounds himself with mistresses. He finally
centers on one, Candice Bergen, and spends his life lying, hiding,
and finally jumping onto a train in the station to get right off
to meet his wife. He can't hide forever, though, and he finally
confesses to his wife. However, no one can work up a good case
of sympathy for Montand because he has caused his own tragedy
and it seems he does not display the characteristics of an honor-
But the film, unlike A Man and A Woman, tries to pursue a
level of social comment. Montand the lover makes films about
violence, war, and brutality. Against the pastel love scenes,
Lelouch has juxtapositioned grainy, black-and-white, stock footage
of man's injustice toward other men. His hero goes to Vietnam to
show the atrocities which "speak for themselves." But the juxta-
position is not strong or meaningful because Montand leaves the
studio to becone the lying, unfaithful husband.
THE VISUAL BEAUTY of the film is in itself worth the
admission price. Lelouch hand-holds his canera in the ring during
a boxing match. He driyes his cameras after wild animals and cuts
the film to reinforce the movement and the pacing. He slowly
pans the contrastless morning haze of Amsterdam. Lelouch closely
crops his faces and cuts expertly between them in the same
manner as.Carl Dreyer's Passion of \Joan of Arc to convey the
feelings of his characters. The striking, yet subtle, visual beauty
is the outstanding feature of this film.
Yet, visual beauty can only be one part of the packaged whole.
Live for Life is still plagued with the problem of the almost trite,
triangle between the wife, husband and lover. The disappointment
in the film lies in the fact that anyone who has seen A Man and
A Woman and remembe's the distinct style of Lelouch can guess
how the love triangle is resolved.
