JULES AND JIM
Truffaut | 1962 | France | 105m
*Intro by Larry Kramer
“Queer/Art/Film”
8:00 at IFC

“A rocking chair has a rhythm of its own; so does Jules and Jim. [Now fifty] years old, Truffaut’s whirling dervish remains an ageless beauty, with a sensibility about cinematic language and sexual relations rarely seen today. A better title for this benchmark of the French New Wave might have been Breathless—too bad it was taken. Truffaut’s camera not only stands with Jules and Jim, it moves with them, searching for the pair when they are lost, opening and closing its frame as they run into and retreat from the world, even freezing it when they are smitten by the rapture their great Catherine rouses in them… A woman is a woman to Godard, but Truffaut saw deeper.”
Ed Gonzales, the Village Voice
