THE FILM LOVER: A FRANÇOIS TRUFFAUT RETROSPECTIVE
Jeanne Moreau Double Feature!
THE BRIDE WORE BLACK / JULES AND JIM
Co-presented by the French Film and TV office in Los Angeles, French Embassy
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.


JULES AND JIM
JULES ET JIM
1962, Janus Films, 105 min, France, Dir: François Truffaut

In one of the greatest films of the French New Wave, Truffaut elevates the material of old-fashioned melodrama into high art: Two friends are forced to fight on different sides during World War I and then fall in love with the same woman during peacetime. The film follows the shifting relationships and affections among the three characters over the course of many years, creating a powerful emotional experience that is both intimate and epic. With Jeanne Moreau, Oskar Werner and Henri Serre. In French with English subtitles.
