THE BRIDE WORE BLACK
LA MARIEE ETAIT EN NOIR
1968, FilmDesk, 107 min, France, Dir: François Truffaut

In Francois Truffaut's delightfully Hitchcock-esque crime comedy, the ever-appealing Jeanne Moreau stars as Julie Kohler, whose betrothed was murdered on her wedding day. In seductive, methodical fashion, she locates each of the men responsible for her husband's death and gives them a taste of their own medicine.


DISENGAGEMENT
2007, IFC Films, 115 min, Dir: Amos Gitai

When Ana (Juliette Binoche) is reunited with her Israeli step-brother Uli (Liron Levo) in France for their father's funeral, the two decide to travel to Israel and find the daughter Ana gave up 20 years prior. Crossing frontiers by car, train and boat, Ana and Uli are caught up in the turmoil and emotion of the military-enforced disengagement of Israeli settlers from Gaza in 2005. With French New Wave legend Jeanne Moreau.
