Overview

Long considered the definitive volume on Truffaut's genius, Annette Insdorf's study returns to print in a revised and updated edition. With fresh insights and an extensive section on the director's last five films, Insdorf captures the essence and totality of his work. She discusses his contributions to the French New Wave, his relationship with his mentors Hitchcock and Renoir, and the dominant themes of his cinema—women, love, children, and language—while exploring his own life in relation to his films. As warmly and piercingly human as its subject, François Truffaut immortalizes one of the cinema's most popular, prolific, and profound artists.
