As the director Ferrand (François Truffaut) and the Cinematographer Walter (Walter Bal) are looking over promo stills of Julie Baker (Jacqueline Bisset), one remarks that he remembers her "from that movie with the car chase". This is an inside reference to the fact that five years earlier Bisset played the role of Steve McQueen's girlfriend in Bullitt (1968), a film featuring a groundbreaking car chase. See more »

The scene needs a new idea. Call your co-writer!
I thought of it. He's in Japan. He's adapting Turgenev's "First Love". Set in modern Japan. Great idea!

I still think it's my favourite of Truffaut's, even though my French teacher rolled his eyes, thinking I could have picked a more obscure choice! The reason why I love it so much, is that it has so much to it. Not only is it a clever tale of a film inside a film, but Truffaut also gives you a view into his own world, as well as those of his actors and crew. Truffaut provides some advice on being a film maker in a friendly manner, and you get the impression that this person is really interested in engaging with the audience in a down to earth manner. There is development and a little explanation of the characters which have appeared in his earlier films, particularly Antoine, of course, which I liked, although it's not completely on a plate of course. All in all, def worth a watch.
