    Jules and Jim are friends. The meet a woman named Catherine, whom they both love. She carries a bottle of sulfuric acid around with her to throw in the eyes of men who lie to her. That is clue number one. But Jim is not worried, and Jules even marries her. Catherine cuckolds Jules again and again, but fortunately for her, he is a doormat, and not the kind of guy who would throw sulfuric acid in a woman's eyes for cheating on him. Since she is having sex with other men, she naturally stops having sex with Jules, who is so afraid of losing Catherine that he encourages Jim to have sex with her on condition that Jim will let Jules see her once in a while. Better than that, Jim moves right into their home and starts sleeping with her, so now Jules can see her all the time. After a lot more of such nonsense, Jim gets fed up and refuses to marry her, so she pulls out a pistol and tries to shoot him. That is clue number two. He manages to get away, but when Catherine and Jules run into Jim some time later, all has been forgotten, and they are all best friends again. Catherine and Jim get in a car and she drives off a bridge and kills them both. And that is clue number three.

  • Boring and degenerate

    Like most French films since World War 2.

  • On a shortlist of the greatest films of all time

    I never tire of Francois Truffaut's Jules and Jim. A story of the love between two friends and of their love for the same woman is lasting and haunting. Placed in the years before, during and after the Great War enhances its deep emotional resonance. It is also arguably the best and most memorable work of the leads Moureau, Serre, and Werner. Furthermore, the film reflects the amazing beginning of this extraordinary director whose first four films, The 400 Blows, Shoot the Piano Player, Jules and Jim and the Soft Skin stamped Truffaut as one of the giants of international cinema.

  • Excellent.

    Wonderful actors in a very sad tale of two best friends and the beautiful but destructive woman they both love. (Love Oskar Werner; though I've seen only him in a few films, you can see the depths of this mans soul in his eyes; perfectly cast here).

  • very nice

    Truffaut's third is a good, but overrated picture. Werner & Serre are friends who both fall in love with the enchanting Moreau, but their lives are interrupted by WWI. The story, despites it's release during the French New Wave, is dull, but the hushed cinematography & editing create both subtle energy & mourning. Both a mature & energy-filled film. I give it a 4/5.
