Day For Night

Day For Night

How hard can it be to make a melodrama? Just because your stars are a mix of divas, has-beens and soon-to-bes, and everybody is having an affair. Is all of this effort worth it just to create a temporary diversion? Director Ferrand (Truffaut himself) must struggle with this chaos and the question of the inherent pointlessness of cinema itself, while the real Truffaut pens a love letter to his beloved art form. Filled with allusions to Truffaut’s cinematic heroes as well as subtle jibes at his fellow film critics, the director lovingly exposes the artifice he dedicated his life to.
