Alliance Française Classic Film Festival – Melbourne
The Alliance Française Classic Film Festival aims to showcase masterpieces of French cinema, highlighting an actor or director who has made an indelible contribution to France’s celebrated film industry.
The 2018 season will focus on Jeanne Moreau, showcasing 6 of her most renowned films from 1958 to 1991.
JULES & JIM
Let’s celebrate the opening of the Festival together with a
glass of sparkling followed by the screening of Jules and Jim with legendary Jeanne Moreau.
An Austrian named Jules and a Frenchman named Jim enjoy the decadent lifestyle pre-WW1. Catherine, a wilful and alluring young woman is attracted to both of them. With WW1 looming, the young men find themselves on opposite sides of the battle. After the war, Catherine, married to Jules and raising their daughter, is emotionally dissatisfied and embarks on an affair with Jim. Under the resilient eyes of Jules, Catherine’s carefree behaviour soon leads to increasingly dramatic consequences.
