Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Marcello Mastrioanni stars as an aging actor whose career has dwindled to TV commercials. Seeking an anchor in his life, Mastrioanni attempts a reconciliation with his ex-wife. But in this, as in his professional life, Mastrioanni is doomed to disillusionment and failure. Salut L'Artiste should be required viewing for every college theatre class in the country, but we know that it won't be; who among us wants to admit that dreams don't always come true? Director Yves Robert, best known for his Marcel Pagnol adaptations, both produced and co-scripted Salut L'Artiste.
