François Truffaut, une autobiographie (2004)
Truffaut kept everything, from notes made on bits of paper to the numerous drafts of each of his scripts, and photographs of those dear to him. This «autobiography» sets out to highlight the director's recurrent themes, as they appear in film after film: childhood, apprenticeship, the conflictual relationships between men and women, death. The film leaves commentary to those, including a number of figures, who knew him well, in his work, in his life and for whom he was a source of admiration.
