See it if You have watched the movie and looking for a different take.

Don't see it if You expect more or equal to the satisfaction derived from the movie. No character arc and poetry like screenplay were dampeners

“This performance fails to engage the audience, resulting in a long 90 minutes in which we are neither transported to the streets of Paris nor a passionate love triangle...Overall, ’Jules and Jim’ is an unfortunate rare case where the movie proves a better watch than the play.”
