The woman from "A Man and a Woman" (Anouk Aimee) meets the man from "2001: a Space Odyssey" (Gary Lockwood) in a film from the director of "The Umbrellas of Cherbourg" (Jacques Demy).
In a recent episode of "Mad Men, Don's back at the movies, this time watching an American film by a French director. Though an obscure reference, the plot parallels Don's relationship with Megan: a guy (Gary Lockwood) is floundering, and unwilling to make life decisions, when he gets involved with a beautiful French woman (Anouk Aimee) who works in LA. “Model Shop” also has a breakup scene that’s eerily similar to Don and Megan’s, right down to the furniture. (Jacques Demy, 1969; 97 min)
