He's miserable, lonely and so self-absorbed that he can't see that Lena, the bars' waitress is in love with him.

Will the resulting events awaken Charlie's emotions again?

The War intervenes and drives the men to the opposing fronts; afterwards, the two quickly resume their friendship, but the balance of their relationship with Catherine is now upset by more adult concerns.

Um, Criterion Collection did finally release Jules et Jim, but I'd be happy to see Shoot The Piano Player too.

These are just two of several Truffaut films that Artificial Eye will be releasing on Blu over the next few months. Very welcome news. (Incidentally, Amazon UK are showing a release date of 11th August for 'Shoot The Pianist'.)

It would be great if AE could go on to release some of Chabrol's great films from the late 60's and early 70's, especially as they have never had satisfactory DVD releases. Maybe next year!

Wished Artificial Eye would consider Jean Renoir films. I would LOVE to see The Southerner get the restoration it has been needing. Renoir is a great director and there are films of his that are classics and left behind.
