Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Yves Montand, who has so often portrayed an unflappable man of the world, is rendered virtually helpless by a small boy in Man to Man Talk. The plot (actually little more than an anecdote) has us believe that Montand is a suburban husband whose wife is expecting a baby. Montand's son must be told about those birds and bees before the baby arrives. Father and son go on a long walk in the countryside, where Montand's carefully prepared "facts of life" speech is constantly interrupted by passersby, by his son's tendency to wander, and by Montand's own reticence. Man to Man Talk ran for years on the American Late-Show circuit before the film was withdrawn and retitled as Premier May.
