Reviews:

The legendary Fran‡ois Truffaut (The 400 Blows) directs, and Jeanne Moreau (Elevator to the Gallows) stars as the alluring and willful Catherine, whose enigmatic smile and passionate nature lure Jules (The Spy Who Came in from the Cold's Oskar Werner) and Jim (The Fire Within's 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 smash in 1962 and remains every bit as audacious and entrancing today.
