Goodbye Again, released in Europe as Aimez-vous Brahms? is a 1961 romantic drama film produced and directed by Anatole Litvak. The screenplay was written by Samuel A. Taylor, based on the novel Aimez-vous Brahms? by Françoise Sagan. The film, released by United Artists, stars Ingrid Bergman, Anthony Perkins, Yves Montand, and Jessie Royce Landis.
Paula Tessier (Bergman) is a 40-year-old interior designer who for the past five years has been the mistress of Roger Demarest (Montand), a “philandering business executive” who refuses to stop seeing other women. When Paula meets Philip (Perkins), the 25-year-old son of one of her wealthy clients, he falls in love with her and insists that the age difference will not matter. Paula resists the young man’s advances, but finally succumbs when Roger initiates yet another affair with one of his young “Maisies”. While she is initially happy with Philip, her friends and business associates disapprove of the May–December romance.
These two actors [Montand and Perkins] are wonderful for their parts. It’s a long time since I worked with two actors I enjoyed so much. They are both charming, both great personalities and very different, and you understand why I—in my part as Paula—love them both. ”
