I loved when Truffaut showed the names of his favorite directors

Watching Truffaut and Jean-Pierre acting side by side was a treat !!

"Listen, it's very simple. We'll stop and begin shooting again when you find me a cat who knows how to act!"

Very funny and charming Truffaut film. Ranks up there with Ed Wood and American Movie as the best films about making films.
