This week’s photo is from Jules et Jim, one of French new wave cinema’s seminal films by director François Truffaut. Released in 1962, the film was based on Henri-Pierre Roché’s 1953 semi-autobiographical novel about his relationship with writer Franz Hessel (who inspired Jules) and Helen Grund, whom Hessel later married. The Cinémathèque Francaise is currently doing an exhibition on Truffaut’s work, thirty years after his death at the age of 52. The exhibit retraces Truffaut’s journey through archives given to the Cinémathèque, and is up until February 8th, 2015.
