2 or 3 Things I Know About Film
Dedicated to the art of cinema.
François Truffaut6 February 1932 – 21 October 1984"Truffaut is wonderful to work with, he’s really amazing. He’s amazing because he’s so simple. He’s as simple as his films. I thought I was going to meet a very, very complicated man who had spoken down to the cinema to make these rather tender, romantic, light, wonderful films about the human persona. Instead, he was exactly like his movies. Really, that’s what set me back so far, was I kept talking to François, he was more than the man who made Jules and Jim. And he’s not. He’s Jules…He loves movies more than anybody I’ve ever met in my life. You could take all of this New Hollywood bullshit and get all of us guys sitting in a room together and he puts us away. He knows more about movies than any of us ever will.”— Steven Spielberg on François Truffaut
