Jules Et Jim
Monday, 9 November 2009

François Truffaut. France. 1962. 105 mins. Sub-titles. Black & white. Cert PG. New print.

In 1900 Paris a French and an Austrian student each fall for the same enticing girl. Catherine (Jeanne Moreau) loves and marries Jules, the Austrian, before war puts them on opposing sides. Later, they meet again and Catherine falls for Jim. Truffaut’s uplifting and cadenced study contrasts the steadiness of friendship with the caprice of love.
