There is a magical moment in François Truffaut’s 1962 film Jules et Jim when the breathtaking Jeanne Moreau sings a French folk song — Le Tourbillon” (“The Whirlwind”) — to her two male companions. Unable to decide between the two men (played by Oskar Werner and Henri Serre), she sings this song about emotional turbulence.
It became a popular hit in France. But I warn you: Once heard, it takes up permanent residence in your head and will be heard in perpetuity.
Wonderful scene from a wonderful film. Thanks for sharing, mon ami.
I miss anticipating and seeing new Truffaut films.
In a previous life, I was on the platform at an event at which Jeanne Moreau was given an honorary degree.
Do you think I got even one word out of my mouth? No chance. I was completely starstruck.
