Jules et Jim - François Truffaut
I am taking the International Cinema art history class this summer and the concentration is "representations of love" and more specifically love gone wrong. This is a very romantic scene out of Jules et Jim, which we watched in class tonight. Out of context it is romantic, in reality the woman, Jeanne Moreau, is singing to her lover, soon to be ex husband and soon to be husband, currently a lover, but never becomes husband. I'm not sure how accurate the subtitles are, but my favorite part is when she closes her eyes and smiles while she is singing. Enjoy!
