Love Lasts Three Years
L'amour dure trois ans
Two young people Marc and Anne meet, fall madly in love and marry, fall out of love and divorce bitterly. We know something is wrong with the marriage when she puts her hand on his leg and it feels to him likes she’s wearing a rubber kitchen glove. After the divorce, Marc Marronnier, literary critic during the day and socialite columnist at night, writes a cynical novel with the self-explanatory title "Love Lasts Three Years", but just when he is getting it published, he falls madly in love with another gorgeous young woman, Alice, who positively glows with glamorous beauty but is not really convincing as Marc’s lady love.
