Fran OIS Truffaut

  • Paperback
Long considered the definitive study of this director's genius, Francois Truffaut returns to print in a revised and updated edition. With fresh insights and an extensive section on the director's last five films - Love on the Run, The Green Room, The Last Metro, The Woman Next Door, and Confidentially YoursAnnette Insdorf captures the essence and totality of his work. She discusses his contributions to the French New Wave, his relations with his mentors Hitchcock and Renoir, and the dominant themes of his cinema - women, love, children, language - and she explores his life in relation to his films, from The Four Hundred Blows to The Man Who Loved Women. As warmly human as its subject, Francois Truffaut immortalizes one of the cinema's most popular, prolific, and profound artists.
