1 - 9 October 2022: Jules and Jim


Jules and Jim
François Truffaut, 1962, 106 min
French with English subtitles  

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 wilful 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 success in 1962 and remains every bit as audacious and entrancing today.
