- Deux de la vague
- Directors Jean-Luc Godard and François Truffaut changed the face of cinema forever as members of the French New Wave. They also happened to be best friends. This film documents their combative and creative relationship during their time as writers for the Cahiers du cinema, their work on The 400 blows and Breathless, and their dramatic falling out following the worker and student strikes of May 1968. It also presents the unique bond both filmmakers shared with the actor Jean-Pierre Léaud, who started his career as a child and grew up with Godard and Truffaut as brilliantly bickering father figures. Includes clips of over 30 films.
