Hello Friends,

I ran across a reference to film directors in the 1960s who were part of
the French New Wave. Can someone "hip" me to a few names? I don't know much
about European cinema, but I assume Truffaut is one of them? Is there a
short list of (must see) masterpieces of New Wave French cinema from that
time?

TIA!
