It works out much better than Lolita where the girl dies and the man is jailed for murder, but not as well as Psyche where through the diligence of her magical helpers and the deviousness of Venus there is a complete conversion from secret mistress to immortal wife, the oldest and most famous in literature.
The difference I believe is in the respect the older lover shows for the girl and her family, even though they don't deserve it.
In The Lover, his mother has died but her strong memory as evidenced by the sad state of his father sets the stage for love.

  The Lover   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Sorting through his wife’s things, he comes across a letter she wrote many years ago to a lover, telling him that she desperately wants to leave Dmitry to be with him but doesn’t think it’s a good time what with the recent birth of her son – perhaps next year.
When the lover shows up at his door asking for the letter, which he claims as his, and reveals that their affair was ongoing right up until Lena’s death, Valery Todorovsky’s film begins its exploration of the interaction between two middle-aged men and their common bond of the deceased wife.
At the end of The Lover, with the departure of Ivan and the rehabilitation of Dmitry, we are simply left with a feeling of facile resolution after their absurd escapades.

When the lover does come, he is the husband, which is not surprising.
The kind of sex-play follows that suggests this is the necessary titillation, and the necessary release of hostility, between a man who means to be master of the house and a wife who means to be both wife and mistress, whatever the house may be.
The lover is weary of his mistress; she is no longer particularly appetizing.

 The lover style profile test.... - Quiz post - Care2.com
The Carnal Lover is a wonderful Lover Style, though it is often confused with terms like "player" or even "%#and!*%." The Carnal Lover is not necessarily either of those things (though sometimes is) but is instead a lover of life, romance and pleasure.
The Devoted Lover is a treasure to find, though it is sometimes difficult to time establishing a relationship with one just right; usually, this is the last romantic relationship you'll need to find, so sow any wild oats first.
The Exotic Lover is a wonderful Lover Style, and conjures images of the exotic, romantic hero out of a romance novel, or perhaps a slightly dangerous and deadly sexy femme fatale from a noir mystery.

His early one-act plays, The Lover and A Slight Ache (Young Vic), are both about this inner rupture: the uncertain self scouring the world for what it thinks might be its missing or alternative half.
In The Lover, Judy Buxton and Simon Williams give an icily brilliant account of the tortured puritanical mind in which fantasy is both the cure and the justification of dullness, and marital war is simply the continuation of marital peace by other means.
Now the Vienna English Theatre's double-bill of The Lover (a play first seen on TV in 1963) and A Slight Ache (originally produced on radio in 1959) comes to the Young Vic.

 : The Lover - DVD film   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Duras wrote this confessional piece about a love affair she had while still a teenager with a much older Chinese man. It is set in 1920's Vietnam, a period of time where Vietnam was awash with the mingling of its colonizers: the French and Chinese.
In the end, I believe "The Lover" is a compelling study of how people fulfill their need for emotional survival.
But "The Lover" is saved by glorious cinematography and the charisma of Jane March, who has a heartbreakingly gorgeous final scene.

The Lover, set in 1920s Indochina, the somewhat autobiographical tale tells the story of a young, precocious school girl (who would be Duras) who at age 15 ½ develops her first sexual relationship with a Chinese man who is significantly older.
The power differential between the Lover (Tony Leung) who is part of a small faction that forms a wealthy Chinese enclave in Vietnam and Jane March (who plays the young girl) and who is be a poor, French national is an important part of this film.

March strikes a fetching pose, hip cocked, eyes distant, in the film's pivotal shot -- the crossing of the muddy, sprawling Mekong River that brought her to the Lover's attention.
Tony Leung, a hunky actor from Hong Kong, seems a shade callow for the world-weary role of the Lover, a Paris-educated businessman who observes the shabbily attired mam'selle from his chauffeured limousine.
Annaud captures her remorse for things past, the sensory delicacies of Indochina, in the sumptuousness of his images, which all too often take the form of extreme close-ups.

 Student Response: The Lover
In Marguerite Duras’ The Lover, Duras gives a retrospective view of her first love affair; an affair that was fraught with forbidden aspects from the beginning.
Not only are the two lovers from disparate countries, but the French are currently in the position of oppressors in Southeast Asia, and although the Lover is not Vietnamese, he is Asian.
In her young life she has endured the death of her father, deprivation, the manic mood swings of an abusive mother, a good-for-nothing older brother, and a younger brother who is as needy as she is herself.

 The Lover: A Film and Book Review: ThingsAsian
Thus, she measures her lover only by the depth of his pockets, while her spineless roué, a victim of his own brand of cultural and parental circumstances, impotently accedes to the dictum of his disapproving father.
Yet for her lover, there was never any question of the depth and sincerity of his love for the young French girl, then and always.
And although The Lover chronicles some of the earliest days of her youth, the book was written over the course of four short months in 1984, when Marguerite Duras was nearly seventy years old.

 Ashes To Ashes / The Lover
In The Lover, these two consummate actors who play so well off and with each other, explored the deliciousness (is that a word?) and sensuousness, yet also the sinister underpinnings, of a couple who live in fantasy.
Then this piece is followed by Ashes which, for 40 minutes, nearly rips your heart out of your chest with its depth and intensity, because you feel for the woman (Cristina) in her pain, and for the man (Ron) in his perplexity.

The quintessential element of the men and women who are Lovers is their natural affection, or "tenderness love." Imagine the bliss of two lovers, faces up close, looking tenderly into each other's eyes.
The Lover is "the romantic." They want there to be "a happy ending," and they may cry with happiness when it comes.
Although nothing pleases Lovers, the essence of this type, more than the happiness of others, Martyrs, the personality that evolves in this area, are always looking at it from the point of view of their own sacrifices and needs only.

 Babelguides: The Lover
In The Lover, Duras’ Goncourt Prize (the Goncourt is the best-known French literary award) novel, one senses a strain of resentment in the author’s tone.
It is as if she is telling the love story (her love story) without really wanting to, as though she felt compelled to write as an attempt to stop this experience from recurring in her mind.
And it is with the realization that The Lover simply scraped the surface of things that Duras resolved to do justice to the true colours of their love story in The North China Lover.

The girl is wayward, rebellious; one day, returning to school on the ferry, dressed in gold lame shoes, a man's hat and a silk dress, she encounters the son of a Chinese millionaire.
By presenting ideas and memories in paragraphs that are literally isolated yet constantly overlapping, The Lover creates a misty world of connections made by emotion rather than logic or chronology, a feeling that lingers after the book itself is closed.
Set in the prewar Indochina of Marguerite Duras's childhood, this is the haunting tale of a tumultuous affair between an adolescent French girl and her Chinese lover.

 www.reviewingtheevidence.com | THE LOVER, by Laura Wilson
THE LOVER is not a whodunit as we know who is killing the women quite early on, and although there is some suspense, a few moments when I wanted to warn characters not to do things, for me this was not the most important aspect of THE LOVER either.
Many historical novelists spend far too much time describing streets, clothes and objects to remind the reader that the book she is reading is set in the past.
THE LOVER works very well as an evocation of people reacting to a situation at the time when it was set, a historical novel about wartime states of mind not period detail.
