Concluding our programme of films marking the centenary of 1918 we screen Francois Truffaut’s Jules et Jim, a tragic love triangle set before, during and after WWI in different parts of France, Austria and Germany. The love story transcends borders and nationalities, involving French Bohemian Jim played by Henri Serre, his somewhat shy Austrian writer friend Jules played by Oskar Werner and his free-spirited girlfriend Catherine played by Jeanne Moreau.
French, 1962, 105 min, English, French and German with English subtitles, directed by François Truffaut
