Based on two Henry James novellas, François Truffaut's The Green Room (1978) isn't considered one of his greats, but it's still a charming and
affecting parable of grief and loss, and it hardly ever gets shown. Truffaut
himself plays a WWI vet and widower who retreats to the title room, where he
amuses himself with his wife's possessions and pictures of battlefield
casualties - until Nathalie Baye enters his life. Screenwriter Jay Cocks
(The Age of Innocence)
