Jules Et Jim Review


Excellent
François Truffaut's romantic classic is a refreshing look at life, love, war, loss, regret... sheesh, what doesn't this movie explore, all under the guise of telling the story of a romanticly entwined threesome before and after World War I.

That it's a true story is utterly beside the point -- there's not enough "story" for us to care. But here's what I don't get though: If Adele wrote her crazy diary in a made-up language, how did anyone manage to translate it into a movie?
