Directed by Louis Malle, (Au Revoir Les Enfants), The Lovers, a 34-year-old erotic drama about a bored wife’s romantic reawakening holds up surprisingly well as a frank but ultimately ambiguous exploration into adultery. Just be prepared for the occasional purple Harlequinism that will set your eyes rolling.
