Set before, during and after WWI, the film tells the modernity-fuelled story of a love triangle between two friends (Oskar Werner and Henri Serre) and a truly independent and impulsive woman. As Catherine, the uncontainable object of the titular characters’ affections, Jeanne Moreau is a truly unforgettable force of life.

François Truffaut once described Henri-Pierre Roché’s source novel as “the perfect hymn to love and perhaps to life.” His exquisite, supremely energetic and highly cinematic adaptation is, along with Jean-Luc Godard’s Breathless, the most famous film of the nouvelle vague, sporting several of the most cherished scenes in cinema history.
