Hitchcock by François Truffaut( Book )

85 editions published between 1966 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 2,417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Any book-length interview with Alfred Hitchcock is valuable, but considering that this volume's interlocutor is fellow director François Truffaut, the conversation is remarkable indeed. Here is a rare opportunity to eavesdrop on two cinematic masters from very different backgrounds as they cover each of Hitch's films in succession. Though this book was initially published in 1967 when Hitchcock was still active, Truffaut later prepared a revised edition that covered the final stages of his career. The book is a storehouse of insight and witticism, including the master's impressions of a classic like Rear Window ("I was feeling very creative at the time, the batteries were well charged"), his technical insight into Psycho's shower scene ("the knife never touched the body; it was all done in the [editing]"), and his ruminations on flops such as Under Capricorn ("If I were to make another picture in Australia today, I'd have a policeman hop into the pocket of a kangaroo and yell 'Follow that car!'")

Tirez sur le pianiste = Shoot the piano player by François Truffaut( Visual )

201 editions published between 1959 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Synopsis: François Truffaut is drunk on the possibilities of cinema in this, his most playful film. Part thriller, part comedy, part tragedy, Shoot the Piano Player relates the adventures of mild-mannered piano player Charlie (Charles Aznavour, in a triumph of hangdog deadpan) as he stumbles into the criminal underworld and a whirlwind love affair. Loaded with gags, guns, clowns, and thugs, this razor-sharp homage to the American gangster film is pure nouvelle vague."--Website

L'amour en fuite by François Truffaut( Visual )

In Truffaut's fifth and final film of his semi-autobiographical "Antoine Doinel" series, we see Doinel in his 30s and newly divorced. Still ambivalent about relationships, the wrath of Doinel's mother forces him to confront his insecurities and rekindle some past relationships. Clips and characters from the four previous "Doinel" films makes this charming and sentimental film a must-see for any Truffaut fan. Loosely based on Truffaut's own life
Domicile conjugal = Bed and board by François Truffaut( Visual )

88 editions published between 1970 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The release of François Truffaut's The 400 Blows (Les Quatre cents coups) in 1959 shook world cinema to its foundations. The now-classic portrait of troubled adolescence introduced a major new director in the cinematic landscape and was an inaugural gesture of the revolutionary French New Wave. But The 400 Blows did not only introduce the world to its precocious director-it also unveiled his indelible creation: Antoine Doinel. Initially patterned closely after Truffaut himself, the Doinel character (played by the irrepressible and iconic Jean-Pierre Léaud) reappeared in four subsequent films that knowingly portrayed his myriad frustrations and romantic entanglements from his stormy teens through marriage, children, divorce, and adulthood. With The Adventures of Antoine Doinel, Criterion is proud to present Truffaut's celebrated saga in its entirety: the feature films The 400 Blows, Stolen Kisses, Bed and Board, and Love on the Run, and the 1962 short subject, Antoine and Colette, in a special edition five-disc box set."--Website
The early film criticism of François Truffaut by François Truffaut( Book )

Deux de la vague by Emmanuel Laurent( Visual )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in French and English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dokumentarfilm über François Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard und die "Nouvelle Vague". Dabei geht es auch um den Bruch, der sich Ende der 1960er-Jahre zwischen den beiden Filmemachern wegen unterschiedlicher Haltungen zum Politischen auftat. Im Mittelpunkt des vor allem aus Filmausschnitten und Archivmaterial montierten Films steht die lange, äußerst fruchtbare, auf gemeinsamen cineastischen Neigungen und Visionen beruhende Freundschaft zwischen den beiden und anderen Mitstreitern der "Nouvelle Vague". Ein höchst informativer, anregender Ausflug in ein zentrales Kapitel der Filmgeschichte. [film-dienst]
What is cinema? by André Bazin( Book )

21 editions published between 1967 and 2009 in English and German and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Andre Bazin's What Is Cinema? (volumes I and II) have been classics of film studies for as long as they've been available and are considered the gold standard in the field of film criticism. Although Bazin made no films, his name has been one of the most important in French cinema since World War II. He was co-founder of the influential Cahiers du Cinema, which under his leadership became one of the world's most distinguished publications. Championing the films of Jean Renoir (who contributed a short foreword to Volume I), Orson Welles, and Roberto Rossellini, he became the protege of Francois Truffaut, who honors him touchingly in his forword to Volume II. This new edition includes graceful forewords to each volume by Bazin scholar and biographer Dudley Andrew, who reconsiders Bazin and his place in contemporary film study. The essays themselves are erudite but always accessible, intellectual, and stimulating. As Renoir puts it, the essays of Bazin "will survive even if the cinema does not.""--PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION
