Boring and degenerate
- Jeff Boston
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.
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 good film. definitely worth a look.

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.
