Day For Night

The leading lady is recovering from a nervous breakdown, another performer is soused on the set, trade unions threaten to walk, shooting must somehow finish before the insurance lapses and a cat needed in a scene can't hit its mark. Is this any way to make a movie? Mais oui! 'Day For Night' is Francois Truffaut's sly, humorous bouquet to movies and the people who make them, the Oscar-winning Best Foreign Language Film that speaks the language of everyone who loves movies. Featuring Jacqueline Bisset, Jean-Pierre Aumont, Valentina Cortese, Truffaut and others in an appealing ensemble, laced with incidents from Truffaut's life and set to Georges Delerue's exhilarating score, 'Day For Night' is day-or-night joy.
