François Truffaut in a clip from his classic film-about-film-making Day for Night – video

Day for Night – aka La Nuit Américaine – was released in 1973 and is French new wave director Truffaut’s most explicit comment about the film-making process. Truffaut himself stars as a director called Ferrand, making a cheesy melodrama called Je Vous Présente Paméla; Day for Night offers an insight into the behind the scenes shenanigans of relationship breakdowns, emotional rivalries and creative difficulties. The cast also includes Truffaut regular Jean-Pierre Léaud and Jacqueline Bisset.•Day for Night: Special Edition is released on Blu-Ray (Criterion) now
