Jules et Jim

François Truffaut | 1962 | 105 MINS
France | Subtitles
Classics: Restored & Reissued

François Truffaut’s third film exploring an intriguing love triangle is brimming with panache and flair – the audacious apotheosis of the French New Wave.

In Detail

In the carefree days before World War I, introverted Austrian author Jules (Oskar Werner) strikes up a friendship with the exuberant Frenchman Jim (Henri Serre). Both men fall for the impulsive and beautiful Catherine (Jeanne Moreau), but it's Jules who wins her hand.

After the war, Jim visits Jules, Catherine and their daughter in their Austrian home and discovers not only that his feelings for Catherine are unchanged, but also that they're reciprocated.

A painfully moving story about uncompromising friendship and uncontrollable love. The joy in the filmmaking feels as fresh and audacious today as ever.

We are rescreening this film due to the cancelled screening as a result of Storm Eunice in February.
