Jules Et Jim + Introduction
Director. Francois Truffaut
Jules and Jim meet in Paris in 1912 and become best friends, despite different backgrounds and upbringings: the former is Austrian, the latter French. Both men search in vain for love in the most romantic city in the world, to no avail. Jules's dalliance with the beautiful Therese ends in disappointment, then the friends meet Catherine, who reminds them of a statue. Both men fall head over heels in love with Catherine but eventually she must choose between them, with the spectre of war looming on the horizon.
