Very funny and charming Truffaut film. Ranks up there with Ed Wood and American Movie as the best films about making films.

If there's one takeaway from Day For Night it is perhaps that we should respect the director, he’s a beacon of sanity amidst a sea of chaos.

François Truffaut plays a shadow of himself, a French film director, in Day for Night, which in this age of DVD extras and common behind the scenes knowledge, has lost some of its spark, I'm sure. In 1973, it must have been at once a hoot and a revelation to see how a film was made, and what ridiculous on-set problems and solutions became part of the fabric of a movie. The love affairs that seem rife on the set of the fictional film are likewise now the province of tabloids. With a modern eye, it all feels a little quaint. But it still works as an acting showcase (Jacqueline Bisset is especially good) and a soft satire of the industry and the lunacy that results when cast and crew are thrown together into a certain microcosm. The characters' low-tech solutions and various compromises (some of them psychological) remain interesting, and I'm sure the film is full of Truffaut's real-life experiences (though one should be careful about seeing it as autobiography, as his own character is an idealized paternal director) and thus of interest to cinephiles.
