The brutal Nazi boot is stomping on Europe, and young Edwige, a French Jew, is cruelly torn from her lover Gabriel and thrown into a concentration camp. He is devastated, and assumes she has perished--but 60 years later, lo and behold, they find each other again in the south of France. In this French-flavored film, "A Star for Two," Edwige (Lauren Bacall) has survived the war to become a gerontologist; Gabriel (Anthony Quinn) is a renowned New York cancer researcher. True love bubbles back up between the septuagenarian sweethearts when they meet at a medical-awards dinner. The romantic tale, which recently finished shooting on location in Nice and should be released next year, flows like sparkling Vin de pays to a happy ending, reminding us all along the way that if the vintage is right, passion and tenderness know no age limits.
