Double Feature: New 35mm Print! THE BRIDE WORE BLACK (LA MARIEE ETAIT EN NOIR), 1968, FilmDesk, 107 min. In François Truffaut's delightfully Hitchcock-esque crime comedy, the ever-appealing Jeanne Moreau stars as Julie Kohler, whose betrothed was murdered on her wedding day. In seductive, methodical fashion, she locates each of the men responsible for her husband's death and gives them a taste of their own medicine. [35mm]
JULES AND JIM, 1962, Janus Films, 105 min. Dir. François Truffaut. In one of the greatest films of the French New Wave, Truffaut elevates the material of old-fashioned melodrama into high art: Two friends are forced to fight on different sides during World War I and then fall in love with the same woman during peacetime. The film follows the shifting relationships and affections among the three characters over the course of many years, creating a powerful emotional experience that is both intimate and epic. With Jeanne Moreau, Oskar Werner and Henri Serre. In French with English subtitles. [35mm]
