À coeur joie

À coeur joie (Two Weeks in September in the english version) is a 1967 French film starring Brigitte Bardot directed by Serge Bourguignon. Too old to be a gamine yet not old enough for matronhood, Brigitte Bardot is the ideally cast leading lady of the film and plays a thirty-something beauty who finds herself torn between two desirable lovers. The film’s alternate English-language title, Two Weeks in September, symbolically conveys the ambience of the film: Bardot is loved by a man much older than herself, and in turn falls in love with a man much younger than herself. All of the characters are old enough to know better than to enter into a menage a trois, yet this little fling may be the last chance for true happiness for at least two of the participants.
