Example text

I mean, it’s raw and crude: no bullshit, this is what it’s about. And the ­discussion after that, when one sister, Anne, is speaking about sex and saying, 18 Anne Gillain and Dudley Andrew “So I met that man, Diurka, and he is good for my art, he will help me. Each time he talks, he teaches me things. ” Then she takes Léaud by the hand, and says, “Okay, let’s have sex right now because ­actually I’m leaving Paris in something like half an hour, so we just have enough time,” while the voice-over lets us know that Léaud is not okay with the idea, that he doesn’t like this moment.

Now that’s good storytelling. ” This reminds me of this American book I read that claims the French are ridiculous since they seem to like having fat men seduce women, like Jean Gabin when he was sixty-five. In America there are nice thin actors. The release of Les Deux Anglaises et le continent was such a disaster that they took back the prints from the theaters. How heartbreaking it must have been. They cut and pasted right on the positive release prints, and quickly re-released it. They recovered the six or ten prints on Sunday and put it back on screen again the next Wednesday, after reworking it.

And you can see that Truffaut thinks, okay, maybe it’s too cheesy, the relationship between the boy and the young bloke in school. But not at all, it’s a little novel, filmed that way. I haven’t seen the film in ten years, but there’s the scene in René’s large attic bedroom when the two of them escape from school one afternoon. And then you have his ­relationship with the mother, and it’s very different, it’s really crude and he adds the father into the mix with the two of them. Then the school is something else.
