JEANNE MOREAU: A LUMINOUS MEMORY
Fran├žois Truffaut, 1979

The woman is passionate, the actress is passionately enthralling. If I imagine her at a distance, I do not see her reading a newspaper but a book.

Jeanne Moreau doesn’t make you think of a flirtation but of love.

Unlike so many actors and actresses who can’t manage to act except by means of conflicts and tensions, to the point of sometimes confusing “concentration” with those camps of sinister memory, Jeanne Moreau is at her best in a merry and tender working environment, which she does her bit to create and which she helps preserve even when there are powerful emotions to be projected. Generosity, ardor, complicity, comprehension of human fragility: all that can be read on the screen when Jeanne Moreau is acting.

In all my twenty years of cinema, the filming of Jules and Jim, thanks to Jeanne Moreau, remains a luminous memory, the most luminous.
