Day For Night

Imbued with Truffaut’s infectious passion for the magic of cinema, this wise, witty blend of comedy and drama is one of the most charming of all his films. Truffaut himself plays Ferrand, the director of a melodrama being shot in Nice. As the production proceeds, Ferrand must control the chaos of real life off-camera – be it a diva fluffing her lines, or the tempestuous romanticism of an immature leading man. A superb cast, including Truffaut regular Jean-Pierre Léaud, perfectly embodies the fleeting joys and pitfalls of teamwork.
