Long considered the definitive study of this director's genius, François 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 Yours, Annette Insdorf captures the essence and totality of his work. She discusses his contributions to the French New Wave, his relationship with his mentors Hitchcock and Renoir, and the dominant themes of his cinema - women, love, children and language - while exploring his own life in relation to his films, from The Four Hundred Blows to The Man Who Loved Women. As warmly and piercingly human as its subject, François Truffaut immortalises one of the cinema's most popular, prolific and profound artists.Read more
