Truffaut's Jules and Jim
A little while back we used this space to suggest a connection between Jules and Jim and Vicky Cristina Barcelona. At a time when Allen is being accused of plagiarism by a Spanish novelist, it seems providential that Bright Lights Film would run an essay praising Vicky Cristina Barcelona for, among other things, its beautiful reflection of Truffaut.
Woody Allen is a shameless thief, after all.
Thanks for your work, Tony Macklin.
