Day For Night/Dvd - Criterion Collection - DVD
This loving farce from François Truffaut (Jules and Jim) about the joys and turbulence of moviemaking is one of his most beloved films. Truffaut himself appears as the harried director of a frivolous melodrama, the shooting of which is plagued by the whims of a neurotic actor (The 400 Blows' Jean-Pierre Leaud); an aging but still forceful Italian diva (Juliet of the Spirits' Valentina Cortese); and a British ingenue haunted by personal scandal (Bullitt's Jacqueline Bisset). An irreverent paean to the prosaic craft of cinema as well as a delightful human comedy about the pitfalls of love and sex, Day for Night is buoyed by robust performances and a sparkling score by the legendary Georges Delerue (Contempt).
