Riding the French New Wave at the Chelsea Cinema
Published: Saturday 31st of May 2008
Film buffs will not want to miss a chance to see Francois Truffaut's Jules et Jim on the big screen at the Chelsea Cinema in London.
The 1962 classic tells the story of two men (Oskar Werner and Henri Serre) and the beautiful Parisian woman (Jeanne Moreau) who influences their lives.
Set in the years just before World War I, it was seen as capturing the bohemian spirit of the Belle Epoque and has been cited as an influence by moviemakers ranging from Quentin Tarantino to Wes Anderson.
Re-released in honour of Moreau's 80th birthday, Jules et Jim was part of the Nouvelle Vague - or New Wave - movement of the 1950s and 1960s that also includes directors Jean-Luc Godard, Eric Rohmer and Jacques Rivette.
Moviegoers with a London Pass are able to attend any film at Chelsea Cinema without paying anything from Monday to Thursday, as well as films showing before 17:00 GMT on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays.
