JULES AND JIM

Charting the relationship between two male friends and the woman with whom they are both obsessed over the course of several decades, JULES AND JIM is the supreme film of the French New Wave. There is pure joy in the filmmaking. It remains fresh and audacious, its enthusiasm for life and cinema permeating every frame. The sublimity that director Francois Truffaut finds in this romantic triangle makes the film an ageless beauty. Jeanne Moreau owns the film as the passionate and enigmatic Catherine. There are whole worlds hidden in her performance. (Tommy Swenson)
