New 35mm print! Rescued from a suicide attempt, Julie Kohler (the inimitable Jeanne Moreau) opts for rage rather than self-destruction and proceeds to track down the five different men who destroyed her life. Adapted from a novel by Rear Window author Cornell Woolrich and featuring an impeccable score by Bernard Herrmann, this is Truffaut’s closest homage to his idol Hitchcock. With Moreau playing the femme fatale to the hilt, clad exclusively in black or white outfits and with a panoply of murderous instruments at her disposal, this is one of the most entertaining films of the French New Wave.
