[La chambre verte]

Adapted from short stories by Henry James, this film is an elegant requiem that chronicles an obsession with death. Set in provincial France 10 years after the first World War, it explores the guilt felt by a man who survived the war and whose wife died young. Believing that the dead can live on in the memories of those who remain, he creates a shrine. Truffaut plays the man with deep feeling and sincerity, and his direction is masterful, creating an eerie world linking the dead and the living. Stunningly photographed by Néstor Almendros, it is one of the least seen and most affecting works of Truffaut's later career.

DIR/SCR/PROD François Truffaut; SCR Jean Gruault, based on stories by Henry James. France, 1978, color, 94 min. In French with English subtitles. RATED PG
