France 1973, 116 minutes
Dir. Francois Truffaut

Aroview: The blueprint film about film-making - made a few decades before it became fashionable - mirroring the first-hand experiences of Francois Truffaut, who himself plays a film-director in the process of making a film.

Using a constantly gliding camera and naturalistic dialogue that intersects scripted lives with ‘real life’, this deftly reveals the daily off-camera dramas, the bustling excitement of the creative process, and the seductive allure of cinema itself. Ahead of a glamorous French cast, a vivacious Jacqueline Bisset (in a French-speaking role) exudes the perfect qualities as the ‘international star’.
