What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
Controversial Françoise Truffaut film about a suicidal young woman. Julie (Jeanne Moreau) is stopped from leaping to certain death out of a high window by her mother. Mysteriously, she's dressed head to foot in black and highly distraught. Julie brightens up though and announces an imminent trip to cheer herself up, though it is only a ruse. Her niece, there to make sure she gets on the train, waves goodbye and the woman in black promptly slips out of the other side of the carriage. Next her hair has changed though she's still in black - looking absolutely stunning and asking people at a party where she can find a man called 'Bliss'. The party is Bliss' (Claude Rich) stag night - he's a rich playboy and he's immediately drawn to the lady in black, unsure whether he remembers her from his past. The film was widely slated upon release and Truffaut himself later said he wasn't even partial to it!.

Julie methodically checks off the names on her list as she finds ways to see that her version of justice is done. She may be obsessed, but she knows exactly what she's doing...and she is implacable. Jeanne Moreau, with those plump, downward-turning lips and puffy smoker's eyes, has never been better. Moreau is an extraordinary actress. She had features that at times could seem almost coarse, but then almost beautiful and certainly desirable. She had a strange fusion of intelligence which challenged and a vastly intriguing nature. I could easily picture her watching Casanova with those reserved, quiet eyes while he struggled to mumble self-consciously, "I love you." Moreau can do more with a stare, a look, a glance than just about any actress I know.
As much as the movie is a joy to watch, the last five minutes has a conclusion that is unexpected and completely satisfying.Read more ›
I must admit i am a big fan of her, I wish I could buy "Balzac" in which she acted in her later years...does anyone knows if/where it is available, in French with English subtitles?
Back to "the bride wore black": i had no idea it was in fact a murder story which kept me on the edge of my seat till the absolutely unexpected end.
If you enjoy "murders" buy it and enjoy.
