Revisit the master of cinema François Truffaut's bittersweet ode to romantic idealism, now gloriously restored in 4K.

Set just before the First World War in a time known as 'La Belle Epoche', two friends Jules and Jim live a care-free life in Paris, travelling across Europe on a whim and sharing lovers without jealousy. But tensions in their friendship arise when the beautiful, but demanding, Catherine (Jeanne Moureau) ends up in a ménage à trois with them, echoing the threat of a breakout of war in 1914...

This re-release from 1962 celebrates 60 years of François Truffaut's stylish and faithful French New Wave homage to Henri-Pierre Roché’s novel of the same name.
