Maurice Pialat's1972 drama, "We Won’t Grow Old Together (Nous Ne Vieillirons Pas Ensemble) " tells the story of Jean, an unpleasant, domineering man. Though he still lives with his wife, their marriage has been over for quite some time. All the while, he has been having an affair with the much-younger Catherine. The relationship is moving toward disintegration, and although Catherine resists it, alternating recriminations and reconciliations hasten their inevitable breakup.
