Claude Rich travels through time in Je t’aime je t’aime.

Claude Ridder (Claude Rich, All Together) is recovering from a failed suicide attempt after the collapse of his relationship with Catrine (Olga Georges-Picot, Love and Death). He is approached by an obscure scientific lab, who wants him to participate in the human trials of a new time travel device. The test will send him back one years time, for one minute. But the machine goes haywire, and Ridder gets caught in a never-ending series of temporal leaps, re-living his tragic life out of sequence. His past is a nightmare he is trying to escape, and the only exit might be his own death.

Bonus features on the DVD and Blu-ray include the following:

-Audio interview with Alain Resnais
-Interview with Claude Rich
-The Meeting of Alain Resnais and Jacques Sternberg
