L'histoire d'Adèle H. The story of Adele H. by François Truffaut ( Visual )
14 editions published between 1975 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 708 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the story of a woman who realises herself in self destruction, a story of unrequited love based on the actual journals written in code by the daughter of Victor Hugo who refers to herself only as Adele H. Beginning in 1863 Adele pursues an English lieutenant to Nova Scotia and Barbados. Truffaut's idea was to make a film with a maximum of inner violence about love involving only one person. The object of her love is worthless and Adele recognises him as such. Adele's obsession is with the emotion of love itself, l'amour fou which radically draws her to a refusal of identity on the outer limits of society. Truffaut called his film 'a musical composition for one instrument' and his single minded focus on Adjani as Adele carries us to 'a larger view of the notion of neurotically willed romanticism.' Kael recognises that The Story of Adele H. is, in a strange way, 'deeply, disharmoniously funny'
