Truffaut x 7 at Metrograph

Image: "The Bride Wore Black" directed by François Truffaut

The most vicious street fighter of the Cahiers du cinema writers turned the tenderest and most emotionally direct of the New Wave critics-cum-filmmakers, François Truffaut was aptly described by Vincent Canby as “a quiet revolutionary who worked in conventional modes to make the most unconventional films,” integrating cinematographic and narrative innovations into each of his fiercely independent movies while imbuing them with a distinct spirit of wistful melancholy that can only be described as Truffaut-esque. In a few films we get a view of Truffaut in full: the Hitchcock disciple (Mississippi Mermaid, The Bride Wore Black), the concerned observer of childhood (The Wild Child, Small Change), the student of romantic and sexual obsession (The Man Who Loved Women, The Story of Adele H), and the autobiographer (The Green Room). Often represented by the same few key works, here Truffaut the multifaceted artist is on display in all his range.
