This kind of films are made when they can't think of anything interesting and original, why is this film so appreciated i really dont understand those french filmmakers seem to like boring lives and they do not offer anything fresh or interesting dont watch it rather watch The Shining or Aguirre twice

Truffaut dabbles in his inner Fellini in crafting a film that exudes an overall feeling, more than it does a linear plot. The film traces the relationships between three young Parisian, but it's really a film that celebrates love and laughter in whimsical, and often very funny ways. The sprint through the Louvre is a classic that still captures the life-affirming feeling of adventure and youth. One of Truffaut's best and most famous.

Jules and Jim ( ules et Jim)

"l'm afraid she'll never be happy here on earth." Touching, unexpected, realistic, funny and brilliant. One of the best (could probably be the best) triumvirate of leads in the romantic-drama genre. It is rare to show realistic and the authenticity of friendship on film, this movie makes you jealous of the leads relationship if one doesn't have a long time friend to hang-out or write to. A friendship ensues between an introvert Austrian writer Jules (Oskar Werner) and an outgoing Jim (Henri Serre). The pair encounter a lively Catherine (Jeanne Moreau), who is married by Jules. Jim secretly yearns for her even when Jules has a family. Numerous women have been connected with Jules and Jim, but none as memorable as Catherine.

The skillful direction, honest performances, enticing so...

Irony, thy name is Truffaut

The best way to describe 'Jules and Jim' is by declaring it to be a 'Wuthering Heights' adaptation without Heathcliff. Another way to describe this film is by declaring it to be a work resplendent in irony and the artifice of love (something with which the French are particularly familiar). Yet, regardless of synopses, 'Jules and Jim' is among a rare class of films that both utilize beautiful editing and photography for the purposes of pragmatic storytelling, and utilize it well. 'French New Wave' films may have an inconvenient propensity to polarise, but if hearing a man with an exaggerated monotone (please forgive my tendency toward oxy-morons) indifferently regaling you with a tale of absurd melodrama does not want to make you thank the Lord God (or whichever deity you may reverently p...

"Watch us well, Jules!"

I am not an especially romantic person--on a scale from the cynical to the romantic, I reside decidedly toward the former end. But if ever there were a romance worth loving, it's Jules and Jim, a tragic love triangle tinged with whimsy, featuring a mesmerizing, timeless performance by Jeanne Moreau. Like much of Truffaut's work (and early Godard, before the spirit of Marx left his soul withered and parched), there is an almost indescribable energy to the film, a manifest joy that is infectious as the director experiments with myriad filmmaking techniques. I always marvel at the way the film makes wholly believable the title characters' obsession with Moreau's Catherine--she is shockingly insensitive and self-absorbed, driving the film to its calamitous conclusion, and yet one never dou...
