This is a beautiful film, a model of economy and feeling, with an amazing score by the great Maurice Jarre, a few years before he did Lawrence Of Arabia. I had the great good fortune to work on a film Mr. Jarre scored, Michael Cimino’s The Sunchaser. He was a pleasure to work with. But check out Sundays and Cybele, winner of he 1962 Academy Award for Best Foreign Film . You can watch it on YouTube, here’s the first part.

    Joe, thank you for this. I have spent a lifetime working in the motion picture industry, largely due to this particular film. In speaking with a friend recently, I remembered it and wondered what I would feel about it all these years later- I saw it in the very eary 60’s.

    It’s like finding an old, dear friend, and a part of myself at the same time. A wonderful film.
