The Bride Wore Black
Jeanne Moreau, Michel Bouquet, Jean-Claude Brialy, Charles Denner, Claude Rich, Michel Lonsdale / Fiction / French
The ultimate femme fatale leads Truffaut’s ice-cool New Wave revenge spree.
Having lost her husband on her wedding day, Julie sets out to have her revenge on those who have ruined her happiness – one by one. Dark, sexy and subversive, this is a definitive Moreau vehicle. Incidentally, avowed French New Wave buff Quentin Tarantino claims that he never saw this before coming up with the glamorous, deadly Bride character who leads the Kill Bill films. Coincidence is a strange thing.
