“Today, I demand that a film express either the joy of making cinema or the agony of making cinema. I am not at all interested in anything in between; I am not interested in all those films that do not pulse.” -
This great cinematic volume provides a chronological journey through Truffaut’s entire oeuvre.
From The 400 Blows to Jules and Jim to The Last Metro, François Truffaut (1932–1984) practically defined the French cinema of his era and was one of the founders of the New Wave which took the industry by storm in the late 1950s.
His endlessly touching and romantic films—always tinged by a touch of reflective sadness—made him one of France’s favourite and most successful directors.
This book traces Truffaut’s career and includes rare images drawn from his archives.
