today it's my birthday and it sucks
why can't I watch any of them? so unfair mubi french movies are out of my reach
Cinema's Monkey D. Dragon
I think most people think that Godard is more interesting because he is more a formalist but Truffaut has made very intense, beautiful films and amazing screenplays ("The Woman next door", "Adèle H" etc.). The idea of love in his films is higher than in any other films.
I think i might enjoy hearing him talk about films more than I actually enjoy watching his films.
Apesar da maioria de sua filmografia tenha retratado a traição. Truffaut continua sendo um dos meus diretores favoritos.
Antoine Doinel films are the best best best
My earliest encounters with foreign film involve Truffaut and his boy hero John-Pierre Leaud. Leaud was my anti hero, my alter self in the splash of adolescence.
I love Truffaut's love for cinema, and how he revolutionized French cinema as an artform. I also think it's strange that his characters always wear the same clothes.
Day for Night... Est ce que les femmes sont magiques? Mais non, les femmes i sont magiques... and this movie certainly is!
L'enfant sauvage: another beauty... Les 400 coups... antoine et colette....
truffaut wrote the basic story and godard made it his own the but the skeleton was truffaut
*The 400 Blows*, *Shoot the Piano Player*, and *Jules and Jim* are some of the most emotionally involving and stirring films I have seen. Not to mention they ooze pure cinema.
I don't think he actually co-wrote Breathless, I'm pretty sure he put his name on the credits to increase the likelihood of it getting made, though I think he did give him the basic story premise.
Any ideas on where i could get a DVD copy of Francois Truffaut: Stolen Portraits?
I have nearly finished reading "Letters" - the insightful book comprised of letters written by the great man over four decades to friends, collaborators and anyone who had the fortune to correspond with the man. I urge everyone to read this book. It has inspired me beyond words...
"The man who loved women" is still missing!
PLEASE add Mississippi Mermaid (1969)
He wrote the original treatment and story outline for breathless, though Godard changed it a great deal
He wrote Breathless, or had some hand in creating the story.
Why is Breathless up there?
François Truffaut inspire me good feelings... I don't know, is this special thing in your movies.
