Jules et Jim

December 10, 2009

To mark 25 Anniversary of Truffaut’s death, his hugely influential New Wave film of a m_nage _ trois. Iconic performance from Moreau. 3 awards, 2 BAFTA nominations. ¬•Jules et Jim seemed revolutionary at the time, but Truffaut`s revolution, unlike Godard`s, implied not so much the destruction of the past as a turning back to the humanism of Vigo, Renoir and the French cinema of the 30s. The film`s “rondo of love” represents both a backward glance at the best of the past and a forward glance into the cinema`s future. Its enthusiasm for what the cinema is and can be is what makes it so special.’ Derek Malcolm’s Century of Film, The Guardian
