JULES AND JIM (JULES ET JIM), 1962, Janus Films, 105 min, Dir: François Truffaut
In one of the greatest films of the French New Wave, Truffaut elevates the material of old-fashioned melodrama into high art: Two friends are forced to fight on different sides during World War I and then fall in love with the same woman during peacetime. The film follows the shifting relationships and affections among the three characters over the course of many years, creating a powerful emotional experience that is both intimate and epic. With Jeanne Moreau, Oskar Werner and Henri Serre. In French with English subtitles.
Y TU MAMÁ TAMBIÉN, 2001, IFC Films, 106 min, Dir: Alfonso Cuarón
In Alfonso Cuarón’s landmark Y TU MAMÁ TAMBIÉN, best friends Tenoch and Julio (Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal), the former a wealthy aristocrat’s son and the latter from a working class background, take off on a free-wheeling road trip through Mexico. While on the road, they meet and befriend a seductive older woman (Maribel Verdu), who helps the young men learn some valuable things about themselves, while guarding a few secrets of her own. With sensuous cinematography by Emmanuel Lubezki. In Spanish with English subtitles.
