Some of these pictures and descriptions may give away plot details that you might not want to know before watching the film.
This is a French film set back in the day when women wore boots because their ankles were too sexy for men to look at and everybody rode bicycles. It's about two men who love the same woman and she can't make up her mind either. This film was famous for starting the trend of saving money and film by cutting from place to place really fast and moving the camera even faster. They called it "New Wave." Jules writes books about dragonflies and natural history. He says he may return to literature with a love story in which the characters are insects. That was way before "Antz" and "Bee Movie." At Jules' house near the Rhine River, in his little bedroom full of stuffed birds and pictures of centipedes, there is a small white washbasin full of water with 5 newts swimming in it. We don't know why, but those French do eat weird things like snails, so.... No, I'm sure he's just drawing them or something.
There are four species of newts found in that part of France, but there's no way to tell which one they are.
