Directors Jean-Luc Godard and Francois 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 intensely combative and creative relationship during their time at Cahiers du Cinéma, their trumphant 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 Leaud, who started his career as a child and grew up with Godard and Truffaut as brilliantly bickering father figures. Includes clips from over 30 films, and rare interviews with Godard and Truffaut throughout their careers.

Interesting look into the French New Wave of the 60's...

I enjoyed this film. If you go in looking for a comprehensive documentary on the French New Wave, you might be disappointed. However, as a lyrical love letter to Godard, Truffaut and Leaud it works well.
