The Story of Adele H. (L’histoire d’Adèle H.) (1975, 96 min.). Truffaut beautifully adapts the writings of Victor Hugo’s daughter, Adele, into a tale of love and despair. Adele travels the globe in order to be close to Lieutenant Pinson despite the fact he no longer loves her. Her unrequited obsession leads to a self-destructive madness.  This psychological drama stands as one of Truffaut’s darkest works with a revelatory performance from a 19-year-old Isabelle Adjani at its core. In English and French with English subtitles.
