Classic French romance about a love triangle which begins before World War I between a Parisian girl and a French & German, continuing after the war and ultimately ending in tragedy.
One of the most famous of the "New Wave" films which emerged following A Bout De Soufflé (qv). The three main performances are excellent and it's very well directed and written by François Truffaut. A European cinema classic.
