Overview

From film-maker Bertrand Tavernier’s first feature Watchmaker of Saint-Paul to his acclaimed It All Starts Today, released in Britain in 1999, his work, for all its unique variety, has maintained a consistent quality and political vision, and it has remained accessible to audiences inside and outside his native France. Offering an in-depth view of Tavernier's films, Hay examines the director-actor-camera relationships in them, as well as the influences of music, voice-overs, and editing. This book is based on the film-maker’s conversations with the author and on first-hand observation of the director at work, and it gives valuable insight into the man himself.
