Jules et Jim Trailer

"As fresh, playful, and enigmatic as ever." BFI has released a brand new trailer for the 60th anniversary re-release of François Truffaut's iconic classic Jules et Jim. The film originally opened in France on January 23rd, 1962 - exactly 60 years ago this week. It's getting a full theatrical re-release in the UK in February. No US plan has been set yet. François Truffaut's hugely popular New Wave classic sees Jeanne Moreau at her most ebullient as Catherine, a Parisian beauty caught up in a complex ménage à trois with the two friends of the title – one Austrian, the other French – just before the First World War. "A romantic rollercoaster of a movie, it’s fast, funny, stylish and affecting all at once." From BFI: "This re-release of Jules et Jim is part of a major Truffaut retrospective which also includes a re-release of The 400 Blows, a two-month season at BFI Southbank, a collection of films on BFI Player, partner seasons at cinemas:" Edinburgh Filmhouse, Glasgow Film Theatre and Ciné Lumière – and BFI Blu-ray releases later in spring 2022. So it's the year of Truffaut! At least in the UK. Give this fun trailer a look for a fresh new take on this classic French romance.

Here's the UK re-release trailer (+ poster) for François Truffaut's Jules et Jim, direct from BFI's YouTube:

Jules et Jim Poster

In the bohemian Paris of 1912, two aspiring writers form a close friendship: Jules (Oskar Werner) is a shy, philosophical Austrian, while Jim (Henri Serre) is a debonair Frenchman, confident and successful with women. Both fall for the beautiful, capricious Catherine (Jeanne Moreau), but Jules is the one she chooses to marry. After the Great War – in which Jules and Jim fight on opposite sides – Jim visits his two friends and their young daughter in the Rhine Valley, but the marriage is not what it seems, and Jim soon finds himself embroiled in a complex, turbulent ménage à trois. Catherine yearns for free and passionate love, devoid of any jealousy, lies and hypocrisy. As her lovers acknowledge, she is "a vision for all men, not a woman for one." Jules et Jim, also known as Jules and Jim, was directed by the iconic French filmmaker François Truffaut, his fourth feature film at the time he made it. The screenplay is by François Truffaut & Jean Gruault, adapted from Henri-Pierre Roché's novel. This first debuted in France back in early 1962. BFI will re-release Jules et Jim in UK cinemas starting on February 4th, 2022 this winter. Who's interested?
