This is the second of three newly restored films featuring beloved international superstar Romy Schneider.

The three films can be viewed as a package for $20 or $10 for each individual film.

Pierre (Michel Piccoli), a middle-aged engineer, has his life flash before his eyes after being involved in a horrific car accident. While falling in and out of consciousness, he reflects on the recent events that have transpired between him and estranged wife, Catherine (Lea Massari), and his young lover, Hélène (Romy Schneider).

Based on the acclaimed Paul Guimard novel Intersection, Les Choses de la vie (The Things of Life) won the 1969 Louis Delluc Prize and was the first of five film collaborations between Romy Schneider and director Claude Sautet.

“A remarkable portrait of the compromises of marriage and the fickle stirrings of the human heart, structured as an intricate narrative jigsaw.” –Scott Foundas, Variety
