Hitchcock/Truffaut
Hitchcock/Truffaut

Film director François Truffaut had been the ultimate cinéphile growing up, running a film club in his late teens and later joining Cahiers du Cinema as a critic.

When he was 30 he embarked on a series of interviews with Alfred Hitchcock at Universal Studios, quizzing the great British film-maker on his work – which enhanced Truffaut’s theory that directors are auteurs with unique styles who deserve more artistic recognition than mere public success.

The book Hitchcock/Truffaut was published in 1967 and this film, with contributions from leading French and American directors, is a very enjoyable tribute to the directors’ meetings.
