Viva la vie: "Through a series of convoluted turns, like a tornado going through Kansas, director Claude Lelouch has managed to keep a vacuum at the center of his film. A corporate executive (Michel Piccoli and a young actress (Evelyne Bouix) suddenly disappear and reappear and disappear, almost as fast as blinking Christmas tree lights. Since neither can remember what is going on, it is likely that they are suffering from the classic "I was kidnapped by an extraterrestrial" syndrome. And in fact, that may be the case because it seems that some ETs wanted to speak through these two people to tell earthlings to quit gearing up their nuclear arsenals."Blockbuster website

"Film divides into three parts, corresponding to the three ages of cineaste-hero Salvatore. As an adorable 10-year-old moppet ..., the boy sneaks into the parochial Paradise Cinema to watch priest Leopoldo Trieste snip out all the kissing scenes. He worms his way into the heart of crusty peasant projectionist Alfredo ... who speaks in film dialog. With Alfredo the cinema is magic--like the night he regales patrons unable to get into a Toto comedy with a free show beamed on a wall in the piazza. Mid-show, the old nitrate film catches fire and destroys the theater. The youngster miraculously drags the unconscious projectionist downstairs and saves his life, but Alfredo is blinded, and the boy, clambering up on a stool, becomes the projectionist of the rebuilt New Paradise. Second part shows Salvatore as a teenager in love with a blond banker's daughter ... Naturally her parents are against the match, and painful circumstances end the kisses in the rain and passion in the projection booth. Last ... is Salvatore as white-haired Jacques Perrin, now a famous (what else?) film director. He returns to Sicily for Alfredo's funeral and finds his long lost love ... Amid many tears, Salvatore learns it was his blind friend who broke up this one, true romance of this life"--Variety review by Yung, November 23, 1988

5 editions published between 1952 and 2017 in German and French and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ein fünfjähriges Mädchen, dessen Eltern beim Einmarsch der Deutschen in Frankreich 1940 umgekommen sind, wird von einer Bauernfamilie aufgenommen. Es freundet sich mit den anderen Kindern an, besonders mit dem elfjährigen Sohn der Pflegeeltern. Die Dorfkinder "spielen" die Ereignisse, die sie umgeben: Sie spielen "Krieg" und "Friedhof". Nach der Befreiung wird das Mädchen vom Roten Kreuz betreut und versucht, seinen Spielkameraden wiederzufinden. Ein erschütternder Film, der in der Stilisierung und Idealisierung einer "heilen" Kinderwelt schonungslos die Grausamkeit und Gedankenlosigkeit des alltäglichen Lebens aufzeigt. Zugleich beklagt er eindringlich den Verlust der Unschuld durch den Krieg und denunziert vehement pseudoreligiöses Verhalten." []
