Shot in November 1965 and released in 1966, the film “A man and a woman” by Claude Lelouch won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Festival, two Oscars (best foreign film and best original screenplay) and 47 international awards. Claude Lelouch was then one of the essential French directors and Deauville forever became the meeting place for lovers and romance.

To celebrate the film's 40th anniversary in 2006, Place Claude Lelouch is inaugurated in the presence of the filmmaker, its main actress Anouk Aimée, Francis Lai and Pierre Barouh, respectively composer and lyricist of the famous film song.

THE GARDEN OF HEARTS

To symbolize its image as a city of lovers, Deauville installed a heart-shaped sculpture on its sea lays, produced by Antoine Arnoux. As on the Pont des Arts in Paris, couples can seal their love by hanging a padlock and exchange oaths, promises, desires or secrets.
