Midnights: THE BRIDE WORE BLACK
March 24 @ 11:55 pm
“With its summery, Mediterranean surface, Jeanne Moreau as the ultimate femme fatale heroine and a knife-twisting tale of murderous revenge and unexpected romance, The Bride Wore Black is well worth rediscovering.” – Salon
“Truffaut is such a poetic filmmaker that the film turns around and becomes, not at all Hitchcockian, but a gentle comedy and one of the few plausible and strange love stories in a long time.” – New York Times
After attempting suicide, Julie Kohler leaves town determined to track down, charm and kill five men who are responsible for killing her husband-to-be on their wedding day. Although Quentin Tarantino insists he had not seen the film at the time he made Kill Bill, they share numerous similarities, most notably in remarkably similar scenes in which the brides cross out names of victims in their notebook.
Dir. Francois Truffaut. 1968. 107 min.
