Directed by Francois Truffaut
Based on Henry James'
The Altar of the Dead, Truffaut's The Green Room stars the

next to shrines dedicated to his late wife and fallen comrades, he cannot
emerge from his living death, even after the promise of new love comes his
way. "...a devastating portrait of a man consumed by such profound grief
that he is incapable of experiencing the beauty and joy of life" (Strictly
Film School). Also starring Nathalie Baye. French with English
subtitles. 94 minutes.
