Synopsis:

At its premiere in 1962 Jules et Jim received a 15 minute standing ovation; its theme song ‘Le Tourbillon’ became a hit around the world and and its costumes initiated a minor revolution in fashion. In terms of inspiration to future film-makers and public affection, Truffaut’s third feature might be considered as the high-point of the entire nouvelle vague, fleshing its story of a menage a trois in Paris and Germany around the time of the First World War with a dazzling weave of filmic allusion, virtuosity and bitter sweet celebration of life.

--------------------------------

We have decided to add in this one off screening of Jules et Jim to celebrate the life and work of the magificent Jeanne Moreau who passed away last month.

"Life is given to you like a flat piece of land and everything has to be done. I hope that when I am finished, my piece of land will be a beautiful garden, so there is a lot of work." 

Jeanne Moreau, 1928 - 2017
