Amazing! Beautiful, in its decadence context. One of the best examples of the Nouvelle Vague. Jean-Pierre Léaud is great as Antoine, maybe Truffaut's greatest achievement in directing. This movie practically left me speechless, great movie!
Three things I can say about this film: the wicked dialogue, stunning cinematography and editing, and JEANNE MOREAU! Every time she was on screen, the whole movie smiled at me. Her beautiful laugh, I'm in love with it. Her character is one of the best female characters ever on screen, with countless dimensions. Her singing for "Le tourbillon" gained my heart even more. Jeanne Moreau makes a fresh and stunning performance as Catherine in every way. Anyone could fall in love with her, and that was the idea of the movie. Overall, Truffaut made and OK job, not a very special directing achievement, but a good way to start. He had some original ideas, like stopping just over Jeanne's contagious laugh and the screen-cutting squares all over the film, an excellent job on editing. Despite there were some out-of-term camera shots and some confusing story lines, Jules et Jim has "THAT" little special that makes you love it! I repeat, maybe Jeanne Moreau has something to do with that.
