A classic of the French New Wave,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jules and Jim: Jules et Jim [DVD]  (DVD)
Not only a gem of the Nouvelle Vague, Jules et Jim is a cinema great. One of the finest achievements of that most serious of talents, Truffaut, this film is lively and fun from the start; who says a serious cultural experience can't be enjoyable? Jules et Jim is deservedly one of the best-loved art house films ever made.
Although it was her two films with Louis Malle in 1958 that made her a New Wave icon, it was this role that brought Jeanne Moreau perhaps her greatest international acclaim. Not at all like her jazz-soaked, stylish debut with Malle, Jules et Jim nevertheless deals with very Nouvelle Vague concerns, not least the central menage a trois subject matter.
Highly recommended to all film fans.
