Jules Et Jim

October 14, 2009

Jules Et Jim is a 1962 French New Wave film directed by François Truffaut. My school, Webster University, screened it a few weeks ago and this scene really blew me away. Take into account that every man in the room is in love with the woman singing, and each has been with her at separate times. The actress singing is Jeanne Moreau.

    I’ve watched this before and I’d rather not watch it again until I’m watching it as part of the whole film. But what struck me was your description, more specifically, that particular metaphor for sex that you use. “[E]ach has been with her at separate times.” What an obtuse way to say someone had sex and so common, too. How fascinating.
