6/10
New wave. Francois Truffaut's best, according to "everyone". It starts more like a comedy, and becomes more serious the closer to the end we come! What is the purpose?
I definitely did not understand all aspects of this, there are several depths and hidden things between the lines you should read about. But captivating I did not find it. A lot of dialogue in principle all the time - be alert when you see it to keep up with! Tolerable to be reviewed.

dissapointed really, i expected a masterpiece like 400 blows. kinda boring, not interesting enough. it had good stuff too but overall it's very forgettable and the plot doesn't make much sense to be honest.

Great movie, I enjoyed the song, "Le tourbillon". It makes me think of "Madame Bovary", but I don't know exactly why. And it also reminds me of "Partie de campagne". Watch it!

Poetic and with many good references during the movie, but not so captivating in my opinion..

In Truffaut's famous Jules et Jim, two intellectual men (Oskar Werner and Henri Serre) both love the dangerously impulsive Catherine (Jeanne Moreau), and yet, their bromance survives. The relationships are complex for being so honest, and being based on a book, a 3rd person omniscient narrator with the dryest of deliveries cuts in frequently, lending the film its unique style. I believe Truffaut was very interested in combining the arts, so literature, philosophy, music, painting, photography, all cut into the narrative, usually with intriguing relevance. Those who call this the French Citizen Kane aren't half-wrong, every scene coded with extra levels of meaning. In fact, while some have called the film annoyingly apolitical on account of its being set astride the two world wars and yet starring a Germanic and a French character, I think the film would support a completely political reading. Just think of Catherine as cultural/political dominance and what relationships to two men have with her at any given time. It unlocks something. And yet, it can totally be viewed as relationship drama, risqué for the time, and still mature and resonant today.
