Despite an occasionally awkward translation, the voice of the late, masterful French film director here resonates through interviews culled from press releases, newspapers and other media. ``I make only films that show what is askew and painful in certain family or love relationships . . . thus to film always the same heartbreaks,'' said Truffaut, who also maintained that as a child he was unloved and ignored by his parents. Although it offers but a glimpse of a vastly rich career, this scrapbook will, nonetheless, be relished by Truffaut devotees as they muse on his 25 films amid the abundant color and black-and-white stills included here. Bearing witness to the director's artistry and prolificness, the images include the mutimanifestations of Truffaut's screen alter ego Antoine Doinel; obsessed lovers of The Story of Adele H., The Man Who Loved Women and Jules and Jim; some 200 children in Small Change; and the ``wild child'' of Aveyron. Rabourdin is a French film journalist. (October)
