7th Art: Les choses de la vie (1970)

"Les choses de la vie" ("The Things of Life," 1970) is a subjective drama directed by Claude Sautet with Michel Piccoli and Romy Schneider. A story about a man facing hard personal choices and how the choices become irrelevant once accident strikes. The car crash scene is remarkable, one of the most beautifully done in the history of cinema. The depiction of the semi-consciousness and near-death experience is highly convincing and written with much artistic grace. This is unquestionably an excellent movie.
