Book Description

27 Jan 1995
Long considered the definitive study of this director's genius, François Truffaut returns to print in a revised and updated edition. With fresh insights and an extensive section on the director's last five films Love on the Run, The Green Room, The Last Metro, The Woman Next Door, and Confidentially Yours, Annette Insdorf captures the essence and totality of his work. She discusses his contributions to the French New Wave, his relationship with his mentors Hitchcock and Renoir, and the dominant themes of his cinema - women, love, children and language - while exploring his own life in relation to his films, from The Four Hundred Blows to The Man Who Loved Women. As warmly and piercingly human as its subject, François Truffaut immortalises one of the cinema's most popular, prolific and profound artists.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fine, but not a biography 17 May 2001
By Michael Albert Riccardi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The title is misleading, since this book is NOT a biography of the French New Wave director, but instead a thorough analysis of his films. It should have been called "The Films of Francois Truffaut." Professor Insdorf makes clear the connections among Truffaut's films. Many of those connections are quite surprising, and will deepen your appreciation of the films. Also, this book is the last word on Truffaut's influences. Professor Insdorf's description of the director's marriage of the Hitchcock sensibility with the lyricism of Jean Renoir is magnificent. This is a fine companion to the director's films, but the biographical data -- about Truffaut's youth and film criticism -- is perfunctory. And there is precious little on Truffaut's interaction with other French and world filmmakers.
4.0 out of 5 stars An analytical appraisal of the body of films by Francois Truffaut 25 Nov 2013
By BobbyPNYC - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book by Truffaut's foremost scholar is written for the film critic or student rather than the general public. It is very informative, replete with film criticism that can best be appreciated by film academicians.
5.0 out of 5 stars Marvelous insight on Truffaut's films. 16 Oct 2013
By Bill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
For the Truffaut fan, this is a very enjoyable book. Yes, it isn't a true biography. Yes, it does discuss his body of work in detail and insight.
