CINE CLUB – Wednesday September 13th

Jules et Jim

jules-et-jim-widgetFrançois Truffaut’s “Jules and Jim“, three times winner and three times nominated, opens with carousel music and a breathless narration that tells of two young men — one French, one Austrian — who meet in Paris in 1912 and become lifelong friends: “They taught each other their languages; they translated poetry.”

Hailed as one of the finest films ever made, Jules and Jim charts, over twenty-five years, the relationship between two friends and the object of their mutual obsession. The legendary François Truffaut directs, and Jeanne Moreau stars as the alluring and willful Catherine, whose enigmatic smile and passionate nature lure Jules (Oskar Werner) and Jim (Henri Serre) into one of cinema’s most captivating romantic triangles. An exuberant and poignant meditation on freedom, loyalty, and the fortitude of love, Jules and Jim was a worldwide smash in 1962 and remains every bit as audacious and entrancing today.

Presented in French with English subtitles

A discussion will follow the film. Refreshments provided!

La commissaire n’aime point les vers is a crime story, where the main character, the police chief is a woman!
