The Bride Wore Black, the sixth feature length by François Truffaut, one of the trademark directors of the French New Wave, coincides with a period when the director pulled away from the movement in favor of a new and original style. Conceived as an homage to Hitchcock, the film tells the story of a bride who only wears black or white and is on the hunt for five men who killed her husband on her wedding day. In this offbeat revenge film, Jeanne Moreau, who shot to fame in Truffaut’s Jules and Jim, is all-out mysterious, striking and charismatic. The Bride Wore Black will be screened in commemoration of Moreau, who received the Festival’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2006.
