And Now My Love is a 1974 French-Italian movie directed by Claude Lelouch. The heart of the film is the "road movie" of father and daughter, as Simon transforms himself from a small-time schemer into a creative man. The journey through three-quarters of a century to understand the mechanics of love at first sight shows the life of Sarah, born to parents who survived the Second World War, and the life of Simon, a child from Paris. After many similar lives, their fates are brought together on a flight to New York.

The following weapons were used in the film And Now My Love:
