AUDIENCE SCORE
User Ratings: 139
Rating: 4.5/5 -- The film's emotional and physical violence is startling enough, bluntly realized through Pialat's visual plainspokenness; but his refusal to situate the viewer in time and place has an unsettling effect that's harder to identify. Full Review
The Dissolve
Aug 11, 2014
Rating: B -- The apricots, blues and sand of summer gradually incorporate the yellows, rusts and greens of autumn as the relationship slowly dies. Full Review
Reeling Reviews
Jul 30, 2012
Rating: A- -- It's intelligent, measured work from the helmer (who adapts his own novel for the screen), easing entrance into a particularly toxic pairing. Full Review

Pialat captures the push-and-pull of their impossible relationship with pugnacious images and abrupt editing. Full Review
New Yorker

Pialat compared the structure of We Won't Grow to that of Ravel's "Boléro" for the gradually increasing fortissimo of its subtly varied-yet-repetitious phrases, variations that here show as a gradual shift in the balance of power. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- A wild, furious, and genuinely unsettling ego is on display in Maurice Pialat's second proper feature. Full Review

Product Description:

This powerful romantic drama examines the final period of a long and ultimately unhappy affair. Jean (Jean Yanne) is an unpleasant, domineering man. Though he still lives with his wife, their marriage has been over for a long time. For six years, Jean has had an affair with the much-younger Catherine (Marlene Jobert). The dynamic of their relationship is moving it toward disintegration also, but Catherine resists it. Scenes of alternating recriminations and reconciliations unveil the anatomy of their breakup.
