François Truffaut The CompleteFilms
Icon of the nouvelle vague. This title looks at Truffauts rejection of traditional cinema. From “The 400 Blows to Jules and Jim” to “The Last Metro”, Francois 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 Frances favorite and most successful directors. This book traces Truffauts career and includes rare images drawn from his archives.
