Book Description

Jan. 1 2008 Basic Film
From "The 400 Blows" to "Jules and Jim" to "The Last Metro", Francois Truffaut (1932-1984) practically defined the French cinema of his era and was one of the founders of the New Wave which took the industry by storm in the late 1950s. His endlessly touching and romantic films - always tinged by a touch of reflective sadness - made him one of France's favorite and most successful directors. This book traces Truffaut's career and includes rare images drawn from his archives.Every book in "Taschen's Basic Film" series features: an introduction to the director and coverage of every film he or she directed; over 100 scenes from the movies, shots of the director at work, and film posters, with explanatory captions; rare images from around the world; informative text by acknowledged experts; and, a chronology, filmography, and bibliography.

Amazon.com: 5.0 out of 5 stars  1 review

5.0 out of 5 stars averaging the score. Nov. 26 2012
By Dennis Watts - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This series is great for what it is. A pleasant, brief outline of each movie with photos and a good filmography. I own many books from this series simply because other books are OP and are too expensive.
Now, my real complaint is with Amazon's policy of allowing reviews to be about Sellers and not the product! Many times I've skimmed and skipped low starred reviews to buy a different book only to later find out that the low rating was due to one or more bad reviews aimed only at the Sellers. Amazon, please find a way to cut this out!
