A true declaration of love for cinema. A film about a film production. If you’ve ever wondered what a movie set is like, watch François Truffaut’s La Nuit Américaine. It is perfect depiction: the confusion, the rush, the bonds that are created, the problems… everything for the sake of the film. Truffaut, who also plays the director, pays homage to great masters of cinema such as Godard, Hitchcock, Buñuel and Orson Welles, among others.
