A sweeping tale of ill-fated romance and cross-channel relationships, Anne & Muriel is the second Truffaut adaptation of a Pierre Roche novel (after Jules & Jim).

Jean-Pierre Léaud plays Claude, a young Parisian who meets two English girls – sculptress Anne and schoolteacher Muriel – on a turn-of-the-century trip to Wales. This meeting will spark a ménage-à-trois spanning over two decades, during which time alliances will be formed, broken, rearranged and reassembled in a tumultuous yet humorous portrait of human interconnectivity.

Restored and re-edited, the version presented here features an additional 20 minutes of footage that Truffaut added shortly before his death in 1984.
