This 1962 French New Wave romantic drama classic, directed, produced and written by François Truffaut, involves a tragic love triangle among Jim, a French bohemian; his shy Austrian friend Jules; and Jules’ girlfriend and later wife,
Catherine. Set around World War I, the drama is based on Henri-Pierre Roché’s 1953 semi-autobiographical novel of the same name and won France’s prestigious Étoile de Cristal award in 1963. The film will be shown in French with English subtitles. Following the screening, CCU assistant professor Christian Smith and associate professor Anna Oldfield, both of the Department of English, lead a discussion on the relationships within the film as well as the aesthetic conventions of French New Wave cinema.
