The Soft Skin (La peau douce) (1964, 119 min.). A haunting score by Georges Delerue enhances the mood in The Soft Skin, François Truffaut’s dark and suspenseful follow-up to Jules and Jim. While on a business trip, married literary critic Pierre Lachenay (Jean Desailly) meets a beautiful airline hostess (Françoise Dorleac) and begins an affair. As Pierre’s behavior becomes increasingly impulsive, his infidelity sparks a devastating act of jealousy and revenge. “The Soft Skin is the Truffaut masterpiece you haven’t seen,” Eric Kohn (Indiewire).
