Looking for Truffaut (2009)

This documentary probes into the director Francois Truffaut, who lived a life as remarkable as his films. Originally spurned by the French film establishment for his outspoken views, he went on to win best director at the Cannes Film Festival with his debut The 400 Blows, change the face of cinema in France and across the world with his New Wave contemporaries, and enjoy unprecedented success among audiences and critics alike. An artist of major importance and influence, this film looks at the man behind the movies and the reasons behind his enduring legacy.
