Remake of Jules et Jim following the experiences over a decade of two friends who fall in love with the same woman, enjoyably satirising the 70's through the search by the three protagonists for their identities and making sharp attacks on cultural signposts of the decade along the way. The film also studies relationships, what its director calls "wanting something permanent yet wanting to be free". Written by
An unusual and interesting story about love and friendship
I very much enjoyed this unusual movie about love and friendship between 3 people (2 men and a woman) in 1970s America. The story is interesting, unusual. Also unusual, the way the narrator leads through the story. It's a funny, emotional, and dramatic story. Although it's a 70s movie with a threesome theme, it's not primarily about sex, drugs, and open relationships (although all three are featured in the movie). It's really about friendship and different forms of love between men and men, and men and women, as well as about finding oneself.
