friend or truffaut?

from 30.00

#art/#history: peekaboo & coucou. ici francois truffaut - & my obvious visual metaphor is obvious. sci-fi nerds may recognise him as the scientist, claude lacombe, from spielberg's 'close encounters of the third kind'...but he's one of the founders of the game changing nouvelle vague - the french new wave. born #otd in 1932, francois truffaut started his career as a film critic for 'cahiers du cinema'. he went on to direct the semi-autobiographical 'les 400 coups', followed by the much beloved 'jules et jim' & 'l'argent de poche'. he & fellow tart, godard, were once thick as thieves, but fell out over political differences - &, possibly, religion. though atheist, he requested a catholic burial. i forgive him for that (& much more, besides). if you can find a copy of his book 'hitchcock/truffaut', sink your teeth into it.
