‘Les Uns des Les Autres (Ai to Kanashimi no Bolero)’

by Kaori Shoji

Director: Claude Lelouch

Language: French

Good news for classical music connoisseurs, especially for fans of Maurice Ravel’s “Bolero,” a revival rental of one of the greatest musical movies to come out of France in the 20th century (released 1981) is now available. This is a sprawling saga of four musical families and three generations, whose lives span and intertwine from pre-WWII to the 1980s. Make music, not war seems to be the central theme here but there’s so much to keep track of and savor.
