Selection Reminder: Romantic classic Jules and Jim shows at Enzian!




Saturday, September 10Jules and Jim

When you’re dealing with names like Francois Truffaut, Jeanne Moreau and Oskar Werner, you know you’re talking about a film classic. But in the case of Jules and Jim, Truffaut’s most romantically remembered masterpiece, you’re talking about something so much more than a late-night TCM binge. There’s a very good reason that this tale of two men at war – literally, at first, on opposing sides of WWI; figuratively, throughout the film, over their affections for each other and the messy, unstable X-factor (Moreau) – has been referenced in the films of Cameron Crowe, Wes Anderson and Bernardo Bertolucci. If the preserved-in-amber set pieces (the trio’s pre-war bicycle ride, set to Georges Delerue’s “Le Tourbillon”; Moreau, in drag, racing the boys across a bridge) seem surface-level cutesy, not to worry: Things go downhill pretty quickly. – Justin Strout (Noon at Enzian Theater, 1300 S.
