About the Movie
The leading lady is recovering from a nervous breakdown, another performer is soused on the set, unions threaten to walk, shooting must finish before the insurance lapses and a cat can't hit its mark. Is this any way to make a film? FRANCOIS TRUFFAUT's sly, humorous Oscar-winning Best Foreign Language Film (1973) that speaks the language of everyone who loves movies. JACQUELINE BISSET, JEAN-PIERRE AUMONT, VALENTINA CORTESE, NATHALIE BAYE and Truffaut star.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Truffaut is looking at the world from inside a glorious obsession: everyone outside looks a little gray and dim.
Fresh: A poem in praise of making movies. Not good movies, not bad movies -- movies.
Fresh: It is a Pirandellian affair, an elegiac celebration of a dying kind of cinema, a meditation on the connection between film and life by Truffaut...
Fresh: It is a breezy, richly enjoyable if not especially profound film about cinema: it conjures the ambient, dizzy sexiness of movie artifice, and it's also notable for a remarkable cameo by Graham Greene.
Day For Night
The movie is great, but this iTunes version is dubbed in English, and dubbed badly in voices other than those of the stars, except Bisset. It makes it hard to watch at times. Rent it from a store.
DO NOT RENT THIS MOVIE. It is not "Truffaut's" "Day for Night"--it is a badly dubbed version that does no justice to the original, and Apple should be ashamed of itself for not advertising this CLEARLY when you download the movie. A tiny "Language: English" in a text box below the first scroll is not sufficient.
Do not rent this movie. It is dubbed into English. iTunes does not indicate anywhere that it is dubbed into English. Waste of money :(
