THE BRIDE WORE BLACK, based on the novel of William Irish, has been directed by François Truffaut in 1967.
Jeanne Moreau's fresh new husband is killed just in front of the church after the marriage. After a failed attemptive suicide, Jeanne Moreau decides to live only to avenge her husband. She finds out that the murder has been committed by a group of friends blinded by alcoholic beverages. One of them accidentally pulled the trigger of a gun after having pointed it at Moreau's husband. At first, she goes after Claude Rich, a womanizer, and kills him the day of his marriage after having revealed to him why he must die. Then, she seduces the lonesome Michel Bouquet and poisons him in his hotel room. She will have some hard time with Charles Denner, a painter, who falls in love with her.
An homage to Alfred Hitchcock. For Truffaut fans only.
