The Austin Chronicle

Jules and Jim

Not rated, 104 min. Directed by Fran├žois Truffaut. Starring Jeanne Moreau, Oskar Werner, Henri Serre.

REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Thu., Nov. 4, 1999

In this enduringly transcendent love story, Truffaut traces the relationships between three lovers and friends over the years. Moreau dominates every fragment of the movie with her magisterial eroticism. The film works in ways that touch the heart more than the mind.
