Ingrid Bergman - wrote on 09/03/2014

The idea for this film was apparently originally suggested to Truffaut by Alfred Hitchcock in the 1960s. Truffaut's homage to movie making is wonderful with a great cast and script, stunning cinematography and of course, expert direction.

Although, on the surface, this film works as an excellent surrealist/mockumentary comedy, it has an extra layer of specialty for those who love the cinema. Truffaut manages to simultaneously lampoon and exalt various parts of the creative filmmaking process. This film is sort of an anti-81/2 and it works so wonderfully well.
