Jules et Jim


You told me:
"I love you."

I told you:

I almost said:

It was around 1912.

Jules, a foreigner in Paris,

asked Jim, whom he hardly knew,

to get him into the Art Students' Ball.

Jim got him a ticket

and a costume.

While Jules was hunting for

a slave costume...

their friendship was born.

It grew as Jules watched the ball

with his kind tender eyes.

The next day, they had

their first real conversation.

Each taught the other his language

and his culture until late at night.

They translated

each other's poetry.

They shared

an indifference for money.

They talked,

and they listened to each other.

Jules had no girls in Paris

and he wanted one.

Jim had several.

He introduced Jules to a musician.

They were in love for about a week.

Then came a sweet thing

who loved to talk all night.

And a pretty blonde widow

who made them a trio.

She confused Jules.

She found him nice, but clumsy.

She brought him a quiet friend

who was too quiet.

Despite Jim's advice, Jules

got in contact with professionals...

but found no satisfaction.

Let's get to work.

"Down with everything"

No more paint, you bitch.

They'll say

anarchists can't spell, again.

Save me! He's after me!

He's stronger than you!

Let's run!

Can you put me up for the night?

- I'm Therese.

- Of course, Therese.

You can't stay with me.

I've got a date.

Gilberte? But Jules can...

That's me...

And who're you?

Jim and Jules, then?

No, Jules and Jim.

What's that?

It's better than a clock.

When the sand stops, I must go to sleep.

- You'll sleep here and me there.

- I see.

- Got a cigarette?

- Of course.

- Are you Jim?

- No, Jules.

You're sweet.

I'll show you a steam engine.

It's almost dawn.

Jim, you might stay here

with me for once.

No, Gilberte.

If I stayed only once,

I'd feel guilty.

If I stayed longer,

we'd be almost married.

- That's against our rules!

- What a twisted mind.

And the cat doesn't like

to stay at home alone.

Besides, it's morning.

Just imagine that I'm going to work.

You're going home to sleep until noon.

No, it was Shakespeare.

Give me a dime for the music.

It was Shakespeare,

I tell you.

Do you have a cigarette?

Can you put me up for the night?

I'm Therese.

Forget it. There are more

where she came from.

I wasn't in love with her.

She was both mother and daughter to me.

I'm not lucky in Paris.

Good thing I know girls back home.

I love one, Lucie.

She refused to marry me.

I've decided to wait 6 months,

and ask her again.

There's another, too.


And there's Elga.

I'd love her

if I didn't love Lucie.

This is what she looks like.

Jules sketched a woman's face

on the table.

Jim wanted to buy the table...

but the owner wanted

to sell the whole set.


This is Jim, a French friend.

Hello. I think we've met before.

Sit down.

- Jim had asked...

- Who is Albert?

The artists' friend.

He knows everyone

who'll be famous in ten years.

This is more exotic.

She looks like an Incan statue.

This one is somewhat Romanesque.

It's weathered because

I found it in the garden.

It was out in the rain for years.

This one is very touching.

Reminds you of a decaying face.

Strange to see stone

worked so flabbily.

This face has beautiful lips.

They're scornful.

Admirable eyes, too.

May we see that last one again?

I made a close-up of it, too.
