L'Histoire d'Adèle H

L'Histoire d'Adèle H - Francois Truffaut

I watched this movie partly to perve on Isabelle Adjani and Bruce Robinson (he of Withnail and I fame). 

I didn't even realise its one of those amazing unrequited obsessive love movies - my fave! It made me want to read The Sorrows of Young Werther all over again!

pauline kael loved this too. she said "It's a great film, I think - the only great film from Europe I've seen since Last Tango." and "You get a sense of surging happiness from the way the picture moves; the ongoingness - the feeling of being borne on a current - recalls Vigo's L'Atalante and the sequence in Renoir's A Day In The Country when the flooding river represents the passage of the years."
