Excerpt from Museum of Fine Arts Boston:

Jules and Jim (Jules et Jim) (1962, 104 min.). An exuberant and poignant meditation on freedom, loyalty, and the fortitude of love, Jules and Jim is one of cinema’s most captivating romantic triangles. Jules and Jim charts the relationship between two friends and the object of their mutual obsession over the course of 25 years. Jeanne Moreau stars as Catherine, the alluring and willful young woman whose enigmatic smile and passionate nature lure Jules (Oskar Werner) and Jim (Henri Serre).
