Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Bizarre Love Triangles on Film
David Moats , February 10th, 2009 09:21

Don't call it a comeback. Dave Moats explains how Woody Allen's much hyped 'return to form' succeeds despite the filmmaker's considerable legacy hanging over the proceedings. Plus The Quietus collects 10 more bizarre love triangles captured on screen.


Jules et Jim

There are probably several French films which should have made it onto this list, including other ones by Truffaut, but Jules et Jim is an all-time classic. Truffaut has a knack for making complex relationships easily understandable on an emotional level. It's particularly interesting to watch the dynamic of the three people develop over several years.
