Celebrating Cinema: Day For Night (PG) #1


Celebrating Cinema: Day For Night (PG)

Director: François Truffaut
Starring: François Truffaut, Jacqueline Bisset, Jean-Pierre Leaud
Realist Drama France 1973
1 hr 56 mins Subtitles

Truffaut’s film, “Day for Night” was made in 1973 as a cinematic homage to movie making and to those who work within the industry. It takes place in Nice in the south of France. Truffaut himself plays Ferrand, the director of a film which is fraught with the challenges beset by it’s cast and crew, alongside the complications and frailties of their lives. Day for Night is like an anthology of movie-making anecdotes. It presents all and everything about the participants involved as an open book. Now fifty years old, the film defines a period of filmmaking that was undergoing tremendous growth as an industry. Truffaut once said: “The most beautiful thing I have seen in a movie theatre, is to go down to the front and look round at all the uplifted faces, the light from the screen reflected upon them”.
