Truffaut and Moreau

"We’re not too easy on each other, but we treat each other with great gentleness and tenderness, we’re a bit fearful of each other but not too much."
Fran├žois Truffaut (Truffaut: A Biography By Antoine de Baecque, Serge Toubiana)

Jeanne Moreau and Fran├žois Truffaut had been friends since 1957 and had an on-and-off again relationship during the pre-production of Jules et Jim and the summer of 1964, which is when The Bride Wore Black was written as a tribute to Moreau, the woman he loved. They remained friends until Truffaut’s death in 1984.
