And Now My Love (French: Toute une vie), (Released as 'A Whole Lifetime' in Australia) is a film released in 1974 by French writer/director Claude Lelouch, starring Marthe Keller, André Dussollier, Charles Denner, and Charles Gérard.

And Now My Love was nominated for the Best Original Screenplay Academy Award in 1975. The film was also screened at the 1974 Cannes Film Festival, but wasn't entered into the main competition.[1]


The film tells the story of several generations of family members and the love affairs they experience. The story begins in the pre-World War I era, proceeding through modern-day New York City.


Lelouch used the principle of Simultaneous Bilingual Film Production in making this film: for each camera setup, the actors performed twice (in English and in French), so that neither the French-language nor English-language prints are dubbed or subtitled.
