Day for Night

La Nuit américaine

Truffaut’s touching and funny love-letter to the world of filmmaking.

Image from Day for Night

France-Italy 1973
Dir François Truffaut
With François Truffaut, Jacqueline Bisset, Jean-Pierre Léaud, Jean-Pierre Aumont
English subtitles
Certificate 12A

Truffaut’s loving tribute to the world of filmmaking depicts the fond but frequently fraught interplay between the director (Truffaut himself), his cast and crew as they make a melodrama in a studio in Nice. Ebullient, irreverent, funny and sometimes deeply affecting, the film celebrates both the illusionism that is cinema and the volatile, short-lived ‘family’ that comes together for a shoot.
