World Cinema Saturdays

This Saturday: TRUFFAUT

As a film maker and aesthetician, François Truffaut was instrumental in formulating the new cinema language dubbed the French New Wave (Nouvelle Vague). In its visual spontaneity and narrative discontinuity, the style he helped to originate provided a sharp contrast to the studied formalism of older and established directors. Although elements of his innovative methods can be found in works by other directors of the Nouvelle Vague, few have been able to capture the lyrical warmth, exuberance, and luminosity that distinguish the finest of Truffaut's efforts, and that mark him as the true to heir to Jean Renoir’s humanist ethos.
