But Catherine loves and marries Jules. After the war, when they meet again in Germany, Catherine starts to love Jim… This is the story of three people in love, a love which does not affect their friendship, and about how their relationship evolves with the years.
Plot: In the carefree days before World War I, introverted Austrian author Jules strikes up a friendship with the exuberant Frenchman Jim. Both men fall for the impulsive and beautiful Catherine, but it’s Jules who wins her hand. After the war, Jim visits Jules, Catherine and their daughter in their Austrian home and discovers not only that his feelings for Catherine are unchanged, but also that they’re reciprocated.

Forces of Nature
There is a book by Goethe mentioned in this movie, it’s “Wahlverwandschaften”, and its appearance is quite meaningful. Because the movie takes a look on human loves and lives that is quite similar to older Goethe’s fatalistic world-view in his novel, very far from hope and idealisms. Strength (Moreau’s character) and Weakness (Jim) are equal forces of nature, and both conduct us to death. The stoic attitude (Jules) is resignation and, seen this way, it is “weakness” too, but, on the other hand, it seems to be the STRONGEST way, because it means survival. JULES ET JIM, both in its content and in its aesthetics, has an air of antique tragedies, but – and this is more like the German novel – without complain, without crying. That’s why it leaves you so “unsatisfied”, and that’s why it’s still disturbing, even today.
Not sure why this is regarded as a classic…
The story of two friends, Jules and Jim. They meet in Paris before World War 1 and strike up a friendship. Jules falls in love with the enigmatic, volatile Catherine. However, Jim also has feelings for her…
I really don’t know why this is regarded so highly. The story is mostly quite dull, the characters are not that engaging, the ending is abrupt and there isn’t much point to the whole thing. Performances are unconvincing and a tad irritating.
It is quite morally progressive for 1962, and the relationships involved are quite liberal for the time, so maybe that’s what all the fuss is about.
