La Chambre Verte
France | 1978 | François Truffaut

The Green Room

This little known Truffaut movie, inspired by three Henry James stories, is one of the director’s most unusual, personal, and moving films. Set in France ten years after the end of WWI, the movie stars Truffaut as a grieving, reclusive, widowed journalist who maintains a private shrine to his late wife and fallen friends. But when he invites a similarly bereft, death-obsessed young woman (Nathalie Baye) to help him with his sanctuary, complications arise. Haunting and unforgettable.

94 min. 35mm. Subtitles.
