Maurice Pialats We Wont Grow Old Together (1972)

  • Maurice Pialat’s We Won’t Grow Old Together (1972)

If you picked up our print edition and read Ben Sachs’s long review of Tonight You’re Mine, you’re probably wondering why there’s a blank space where the star rating ought to be. We’re still trying to figure out why the stars didn’t print; my own theory is that they’re so distant their light takes years to reach the earth, so they’re there but we just can’t see them yet. For the record, Sachs gives the film four stars; he also recommends Maurice Pialat’s 1972 drama We Won’t Grow Old Together, screening this week at Gene Siskel Film Center
