Sometimes two and two make three. Rosalie and David… Rosalie and César… César and David…. After her marriage ends in divorce, the beautiful Rosalie (Romy Schneider) begins dating César (Yves Montand), a wealthy playboy and businessman. But when her old flame, David (Sami Frey), unexpectedly re-enters her life, the two men simultaneously vie for her affections.
One of Claude Sautet’s most celebrated films, CÉSAR ET ROSALIE reunited the director with his on-screen muse Romy Schneider, who according to Roger Ebert’s Chicago Sun-Times review could “make a half-shy smile into the suggestion of unimaginable carnal possibilities.”
