A delightful documentary about Truffaut and Goddard and their relationship over the course of their careers. Using archival footage, the film also highlights their relationship with Jean-Pierre Léaud. My one big issue with it is the level of detail this film goes into. It’s like the Cliff Notes version of the world at that time when what you actually crave is the full, 25-volume version with footnotes attached.
Definitely go see this movie if you are in any way connected to film. It will inspire any writer/director – incredible how much these men achieved at such a young age and how they changed the course of our world. But be aware that it is merely a taste of things, not a fulfilling meal.
