Based on the novel by Henri-Pierre Roché, this classic of the French New Wave chronicles a buoyant love triangle between two friends, one French and one German, and an alluring woman, the object of their mutual obsession, over twenty-five years.
An exuberant French New Wave classic, starring the unforgettable Jeanne Moreau in one of her most notorious, spellbinding performances. François Truffaut plays wildly with images—using freeze frames, jump cuts, and newsreels—to elevate cinema’s innovative potential in this paean to lost innocence.
