See 2022 Lofty Achievement Award recipient Jacqueline Bisset in Francois Truffaut’s delightful ode to moviemaking, winner of the 1975 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film!
This affectionate farce from François Truffaut about the joys and strife 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 (Jean-Pierre Léaud), an aging but still forceful Italian diva (Valentina Cortese), and a British ingénue haunted by personal scandal (Jacqueline Bisset). An irreverent paean to the prosaic craft of cinema as well as a delightful human comedy about the pitfalls of sex and romance, Day for Night is buoyed by robust performances and a sparkling score by the legendary Georges Delerue. (Dir. by Francois Truffaut, 1973, France/Italy, in French/English/Italian with English subtitles, 116 mins., Rated PG)
