François Truffaut Perancis, 1978

josé neves's rating of the film The Green Room

Truffaut is undeniably the great heir of a non discursive narrative cinema, allusively artistic, romanesque. Maybe that's why his films from literary works or its suggestions, like this film, are among his most remarkable movies: there's a writing larger that its imagery and an imagery deeply inscribed in its writing. This film is a summary of the pictorial and literary qualities that an aching vision may invoke.
