"François Truffaut's first film adaptation of a literary work, 'Tirez sur le pianiste,' sheds light on his approach to the relationship between film and literature. The novel 'Down There' by David Goodis was used by Truffaut only as a pretext for the film. The film reflects Truffaut's background as a film critic, but he did not continue in the same vein in his later works." [Expanded Academic Index]

" Part of a special section on the legacy of the work of Francois Truffaut. The writer discusses the political aspect of Truffaut's work. Truffaut was never a militant, and indeed, during the 1970s, when the only way to be political was to be militant, he passed for apolitical. The politics that is at work in his films refers to the very etymology of the word, the "city" in the Greek philosophical sense--that is, the idea of a collection of free individuals who formulate ways of living together, and thus represent the opposite of militantism. The writer examines how this politics is expressed in several of Truffaut's films and writings." [Art Index]

"Modernism, Sexuality, and Film Adaptation, describes Truffaut's adaptation methods in a passage that, in its own way, seems to echo Truffaut himself (here, in reference to Jules and Jim): "Rather than 'copy' the novel, Truffaut applied a kind of electroshock to it, exploding it into discursive fragments and shards to be reassembled and recontextualized and collaged together with 'alien' materials from other sources" (85). Reassessing the White and Black Mix in Film Noir, Jans B. Wager builds upon her previous work on the femme fatale in noir-where her goal was to displace masculinity from its central position in the critical history of film noir-and asks whether a similar move might be made for the even more marginalized images of jazz musicians and black nightclub patrons in film noir."

"The writer reflects on the extended adolescence of the French director Francçois Truffaut. He remarks that Truffaut exhibited a boyish exuberance in his early work that was only intermittently recaptured in later works. He considers that the underlying bent of Truffaut's vision is essentially melancholic and that romantic obsession is the key emotional configuration of his films." [ArtAbstracts]

For the following 20 years, he worked successfully with directors such as Pasolini, Truffaut, Cocteau, and Bertolucci. He disappeared from the cinema screen for a few years in the early 1980s but returned in Godard's great film Le Detective in 1985. Leaud is quite simply one of the cinema's greatest artists."

"François Truffaut used the memories of his childhood years as material for many of his films. A youthful inventiveness and exuberance marked many of his early productions, with the actor Jean-Pierre Leaud immortalizing the director's tragicomically self dramatizing alter-ego, the film character Antoine Doinel in five movies during the course of a 20-year period from 1959 to 1979. Fox-Lorber Assoc Inc's decision to strike new prints of 13 Truffaut pictures is an excellent way of marking the 15th anniversary of his death." [Expanded Academic Index]

"The use of optical images derived from mixed media sources in rendering motion picture representation has led to the integration of various cinematic tools. Such an integration has created a medium through which cultural anxieties, including death and sexuality, may be portrayed effectively to viewers. Filmmaker François Truffaut is one of the few artists who have made use of photographic, paintings and map incorporations in presenting tragic and comic dilemmas in his works."

Truly a Renaissance man, Almendros started to write and direct his own films in 1980. He ultimately became disenchanted with Hollywood and big studio productions." [ArtAbstracts]

François Truffaut's screen interpretation of Cornell Woolrich's 'The Bride Wore Black' was unsuccessful because it failed to convey its feminist message which would have been powerful because feminism had not yet gained a foothold when the movie was shown in 1968. Truffaut was accused of trying to be Hitchcock when he obviously was not yet equipped to do so. The movie failed to measure up to the book which was a critical success when it was published in 1940.

"Francçois Truffaut's serio-comic portrayal of the pleasures and pains of moviemaking, Day for Night, was an international hit when it was released in 1973. It was acclaimed in France as one of his finest works, swept the British Academy Awards, garnered the Oscar in America for Best Foreign-Language Film, and was the National Society of Film Critics' Best Picture of the Year. Nevertheless, hardly anybody in America today appears to recognize it as one of the best movies of the 1970s and arguably the richest and most satisfying of the director's career. The film is discussed." [ArtAbstracts]

Starting with a brief history of its less than enthusiastic critical reception, he methodically interrogates each critique, refuting, for example, charges that the film is humorless and cold and that its characters are lifeless. He then offers his own reading of the film, finding in it the "terrifying lucidity" that Truffaut found in the best of Alfred Hitchcock." [Art Index]

UC users only
"The writer compares Truffaut's film La Chambre verte with Henry James's story "Rose-Agathe." Noting that La Chambre verte is actually a loose adaptation of another James story, "The Altar of the Dead," she contends that the relationship between the film and "Rose-Agathe" is, nonetheless, a more illuminating one to explore. She acknowledges that it is unlikely that either Truffaut or his screenwriter read "Rose-Agathe. Nevertheless, she suggests that there are resonances, largely taking the form of inversions and reversals, between the story and La Chambre verte. She provides a detailed analysis of the film's wax effigy scene, which she contends negates almost everything about James's wax mannequin story, "Rose-Agathe." She explains why La Chambre verte is a total work of art, rather than a "simple adaptation." [Art Index]

"The writer contends that the Pygmalion myth of 19th-century literature underwent a dissolution as Pygmalion figures experienced delusions that metamorphosed into "illusions of movement" made possible by the advent of cinema. To chart the dissolution of the Pygmalion myth in literature, she examines E. T. A. Hoffmann's story "Der Sandmann" and Villiers de l'Isle-Adam's novel The Eye of the Future. To show how cinema usurped the "Pygmalionesque space" previously dominated by literature, she discusses three films: Georges Melies's La Parapluie fantastique, ou dix femmes sous une ombrelle, Karl Freund's Hollywood horror film Mad Love, and Francois Truffaut's Le chambre verte."

The voice and the visual presence of Catherine in François Truffaut's 1962 movie 'Jules and Jim' each represent elements of a maternal force that the men are compelled to both seek and flee. Jules and Jim represent male subjectivity resorting to the visual pleasure of Catherine to escape the maternal force of her voice. After Catherine's death, her daughter Sabine assumes her role of female figuration and uncapturable maternal power.

"Jules and Jim." Film Comment v. 28 (November/December 1992) p. 28-30
"An article reprinted from The Thousand Eyes. Francois Truffaut's Jules and Jim focuses on a character named Catherine, played by Jeanne Moreau, who epitomizes a noble, if unrealistic, refusal to compromise in life. Catherine believes and acts in absolutes and grand gestures; she herself is a beautiful, if terrible, ideal. Her character is closely wedded to the film's lyrically open style. Like Catherine, the film lacks ironic restraint or control. Truffaut revels with innocence and delight in the sheer joy of making a movie." [Art Index]

UC users only
"Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo (1958) was an important influence on two of Francois Truffaut's films, Tirez Sur le Pianiste (1960) and Jules et Jim (1961). On his way toward defining his own voice, Truffaut both absorbed from Hitchcock and resisted him. Drawing on Harold Bloom's theory of literary influence, we can regard Tirez Sur le Pianiste and Jules et Jim as two variant misreadings of Vertigo. Truffaut has to develop a new language and to misread Hitchcock's rigorous and precise cinema. The reason is that whereas Hitchcock strives for full control and total perfection, Truffaut wants freedom for unplanned moments that are necessary sometimes for giving real expression to an elusive reality--as opposed to the deceptive appearances to which Hitchcock gives expression."

'Shoot the Piano Player' is director François Truffaut's second film following the success of '400 Blows' as part of the New Wave movement in French cinema. Truffaut shares insights, techniques, and his influences in the film adaptation of the David Goodis novel. The film is a tribute to American films and is meant to be an anti-thesis to the New Wave movement. The casting of Charles Aznavour and Mary Dubois among others are likewise recounted.

UC users only
American films such as Nicholas Ray's 'Rebel Without a Cause' did influence François Truffaut's 'Tirez sur la Pianiste' but not in the way many critics have written. The critical view that Truffaut's 'Tirez sur la Pianiste' shows a resistance to American culture and unwillingness to assimilate its traits is misguided. What the film shows is that such themes were assimilated and both films share the presentation of a troubled, hurt male protagonist.

"Francçois Truffaut's L'Argent de poche (Small Change) can be thought of as the third in a trilogy of movies about children. Unlike Les 400 Coups (The 400 Blows) and L'Enfant sauvage (The Wild Child), however, Small Change is less judgmental of the adult world. The two main characters, an only son obliged to care for his paralyzed and widowed father and an alienated child abused by his mother, emphasize Truffaut's preferred themes of the lack of a mother's understanding and love and the lack of a father's authority. The film is a hymn to youth as an autonomous force that appears to require adult protection but in reality can withstand the most difficult events with dignity and strength." [ArtAbstracts]
