César and Rosalie by Claude Sautet (110′)

The divorced Rosalie is attending a family wedding with her new lover, the wealthy scrap metal merchant César, when she encounters her ex-boyfriend David, a cartoonist newly back from America. At the reception, David tells César that he still loves Rosalie, and César can see that the feeling isn’t entirely one-sided. Thus begins Sautet’s magnificent ménage-à-trois César and Rosalie, in which these two very different men compete for the fickle affections of their impulsive lady love, only to slowly form their own grudging friendship.
