THE STORY OF ADELE H. (1975) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Isabelle Adjani, Bruce Robinson, Sylvia Marriott, Joseph Blatchley
Directed By:  Francois Truffaut
Composed By:  Maurice Jaubert

“A musical, lilting film with a tidal pull to it…a phenomenon…our absorption extends from the character to a larger view of the nature of neurotically willed romanticism…Adèle H is a feat of sustained acuteness, a grand-scale comedy about unrequited love, and Truffaut’s most passionate work.”
—Pauline Kael, The New Yorker

“A profoundly beautiful film…Truffaut’s most severe, most romantic meditation upon love…a film that I suspect Jean Renoir would much admire. He understands such things.”
—Vincent Canby, The New York Times

The Story of Adèle H (L’Histoire d’Adèle H., 1975) is the sublime François Truffaut’s frighteningly intense look at amour fou: the obsessive love that drives a woman to destruction. The woman is Adèle Hugo (tragically incarnated by the magnificent Isabelle Adjani), the talented and privileged daughter of the most celebrated author in Europe; the object of her affection is a n’er-do-well English soldier, one Lieutenant Pinson (Bruce Robinson, future director of the riotous Withnail & I). Based on fact, this titanically poetic film follows the infatuated Adèle as she trails Pinson from one end of the earth to the other, descending into madness and living on the fire of her passion. Stunningly photographed by the singular Nestor Alemandros and featuring a towering score by Maurice Jaubert.
