Many women are attending Bertrand Morane's burial. They are all the ones that 40 years old engineer loved. Flashback : Bertrand's life and love affairs, told by himself while writing an autobiographical novel. A film about the love relationships, the need to charm and the literary creation.


During the same year that Close Encounters of The Third Kind came out, in which he played a part in, François Truffaut released The Man Who Loved Women.The title could easily apply to Truffaut himself.Truffaut loved women and in all of his films he explores the theme of love and all the conflicts that can assail when we are in such astate. Bertrand is seldom alone, prompting him to say at one point, while typing his memoir alone in his apartment, "I cherish my moments of isolation."For two hours we follow Bertrand's adventures as he genuinely falls for almost every woman he meets and some that he doesn't, such as the operator who calls him every morning at seven to wake him up.Bertrand is a homely man yet one imbuing a charm and sensitivity that as one woman says, "Feels like it is very important when you ask for something.Like you will almost die if you don't get it."He is hard to resist and so is the funny, charming, deep, introspective, dramatic, sometimes melodramatic, part autobiographical film from Francois Truffaut. I give it a 8 out of 10.It's not as cinematic as some of his earlier films but it certainly is better than the current trends of either domestic or foreign films.Truffaut passed away too soon and it is the cinema's loss in every way.
