Day For Night

1973 / 115min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: FRANçOIS TRUFFAUT

CAST: JEAN-PIERRE LéAUD, JACQUELINE BISSET, FRANçOIS TRUFFAUT

One of the greatest films on the joys and perils of filmmaking, Day for Night features a moment that could be taken from the life of any cinephile: Truffaut returning home and slowly unpacking a stack of recently purchased film books. It is one thing to be separated from seeing films when on set, but one cannot also be deprived of reading about them, too. “There is no such thing as two Truffauts: the Cahiers du Cinema critic and the filmmaker. There is only one singular mind inventing cinema with movies, scripts, film books, interviews. That is why Day for Night is both a film, and a film review.” - Breixo Viejo
