Storyline

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 Rixer <rixer@radsoft.net>

Funny, witty and sophisticated. A lot of fun!
31 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie over six years ago, and I still think about it from time to time. If you are in a "new" realationship this film is a must see. If you are not, then see it anyway, although a little hard to find. The humor is top notch and for people with a brain. If you like humor with smarts then you will enjoy this movie.
