Day for Night (La nuit américaine) (1973, 115 min.). Truffaut’s love letter to the cinema celebrates the high and lows of the moviemaking process. Truffaut plays Ferrand, a director busy on the set on his new film Meet Pamela, a cliché melodrama. Ferrand juggles the technical difficulties of moviemaking with the cast and crew’s array of personal problems that threaten to derail the project.  A rich meditation on the connections between life and film, Day for Night is one of Truffaut’s most beloved works.
