World War I + 100
La Chambre Verte
France | 1978 | François Truffaut
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.
