Claude Lelouch's Bolero covers a time span of half a century, concentrating on several generations of music lovers, all hailing from different nations and cultural backgrounds. Each of the principal actors plays multiple characters. Among the cast-members is James Caan, Robert Hossein and Geraldine Chaplin. The film's original title was Les Uns et les autres. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"At one point the narrator berates history for lacking imagination; history, as revealed here, certainly lacks taste, and its imagination could be toned up, but there's no shortage of silly entertainment."
‑ , Time Out
"Impossible to synopsize coherently, it doesn't so much tackle themes as lay them out for scrutiny and musical embellishment."
‑ , Film4
"[A] disjointed, incoherent mess."
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"The songs, written by Michel Legrand and Francis Lai, are addictive in the best French pop manner. A few of the dance sequences are spectacular. Only when the scene shifts to a subplot not involving music does the movie get bogged down."
‑ Douglas Pratt, DVDLaser
"An important cinematic work which celebrates the human imagination as triumphant."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Lelouch doesn't have a handle on his subject."
