A Retrospective of the films of FranÃ§ois Truffaut
Day for Night (La nuit americaine) (1973, 115 mins.)
Day for Night was Truffaut's loving and humorous tribute to the collective insanity of making a movie. The film details the making of a family drama about the tragedy that follows when a young French man introduces his parents to his new British wife. Truffaut gently satirizes his own films with the drama's overwrought storyline, but the real focus is on the chaos behind the scenes. Starring Jacqueline Bisset and Jean-Pierre Leaud, Day for Night went on to win the 1973 Oscar for Best Foreign Film.
