Permit me to make an impossible wish?
Because I'm a rather pessimist.
I've heard it said: "There are no optimists or pessimists. There are only happy idiots or unhappy ones".
Yes, well. I'm an unhappy idiot then.

The Bride Wore Black is, for my money, Truffaut's best film! Jeanne Moreau is pitch perfect as the shattered bride, who will stop at nothing to punish the men responsible for her husband's death. She is fully authentic, as she tracks down and dispenses justice to those responsible, with a cold and icy single mindedness, that would make a shark shudder!! This is a must see for all Truffaut fans, one that still remains vivid to me! 9 out of 10!
