The Synopsis for Hitchcock/Truffaut (2015) 720p

In 1962 Hitchcock and Truffaut locked themselves away in Hollywood for a week to excavate the secrets behind the mise-en-scène in cinema. Based on the original recordings of this meeting-used to produce the mythical book Hitchcock/Truffaut-this film illustrates the greatest cinema lesson of all time and plummets us into the world of the creator of Psycho, The Birds, and Vertigo. Hitchcock's incredibly modern art is elucidated and explained by today's leading filmmakers: Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Arnaud Desplechin, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Wes Anderson, James Gray, Olivier Assayas, Richard Linklater, Peter Bogdanovich and Paul Schrader.

Hitchcock/Truffaut (2015) was written and directed by Kent Jones. Themovie is a documentary about the two-week period during which the youngFrench filmmaker Francois Truffaut interviewed the older filmmakerAlfred Hitchcock. Truffaut--who greatly admired Hitchcock's work--waswriting a book about Hitchcock. It was published in 1966 with the title"Cinema According to Hitchcock."

This long interview was sound recorded, but apparently not entirelyfilmed. So, often we are watching a still while the words are given asvoice-over. We see clips of great Hitchcock and Truffaut movies, butusually I couldn't see the relationship between the words and the filmclips.

Also, Hitchcock spoke English, and Truffaut spoke French, so each washearing the other person's words through a interpreter. (Obviously, theinterpreter was a professional. Still, unless you know both languageswell, you can't tell whether each man is hearing the essence of theother man's words.)

Most of the movie consists of comments about Hitchcock, Truffaut, andthe book given by famous film directors. These include PeterBogdanovich, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Paul Schrader, and Martin Scorsese.

I'm a movie buff, and I've reviewed over 600 movies for IMDb since1999. However, I don't understand the intricate technical subtletiesthat film professors teach, and that were discussed in this movie. Ifelt as if I were outside, looking inside, watching professionals talkabout their magic. I would have preferred less talking and more filmclips, but director Jones wanted to give us talking heads instead. Ofcourse, the heads that were talking were highly successful moviedirectors, so it's hard to complain. However, this is a better moviefor highly knowledgeable film people. It was interesting enough for mywife and me, but I won't suggest that you seek it out unless you arereally versed in cinema.

We saw this film at the wonderful Dryden Theatre in the George EastmanMuseum in Rochester, NY. Naturally, because the movies discussed weremeant for the large screen, the film clips work better on a largescreen. However, the interviews will work just as well on a smallscreen.

Not the usual kind of biographical stuff about the celebrity'schildhood and how he "rose to prominence" before he "fell from grace."In other words it's not an episode of "Biography." The object ofattention is the book, "Cinema According to Hitchcock" by an admirerand fellow director Francois Truffaut, published in 1966.

The film is roughly (but only roughly) chronological and thebiographical material is limited but covers both Hitchcock and hisinterviewer. What makes it more interesting than it might be is thatTruffaut was about half Hitchcock's age. They came from differenttraditions -- Hitch from the silents, when everything needed to bespelled out visually, and Truffaut from the French "New Wave" cinema ofthe early 1960s, when the rules were thrown out the window.

Despite their different styles, they never clash. Truffaut is too goodnatured for that, and Hitch too distantly polite in his British way.Only once, in the book, not in the film, is there any sign of friction,when Truffaut suggests a different way Hitch might have handled a sceneand he replies, "It seems you want me to write for an art houseaudience." Lots of excerpts from Hitch's movies and several fromTruffaut's as well. A good deal of attention is paid to cinematictechniques -- the position of the camera, the lighting, the pattern ofthe images themselves. Some of the talking heads, and Hitchcockhimself, come up with implications that to me seem questionable. Ican't manage to convince myself that, while waiting for Kim Novack toemerge fully transformed from the bathroom, Jimmy Stewart is "gettingan erection." In fact, I can't imagine Jimmy Stewart getting anerection at all.

I suspect the program might disappoint some viewers who don't want tolisten to the interlocutors making polite jokes. (Twice, Hitch is aboutto tell an anecdote and asks for the recorder to be turned off.)Nothing in the movie is critical of either Truffaut or Hitchock, whobecame an alcoholic during his last years.

There are photos from the interview and excerpts from the recording, aswell as a description of the surprising friendship that developedbetween the two. I thought it was all fascinating.

This documentary "Hitchcock/Truffaut" is interesting and informativefor the way it details the way the master of suspense worked on hisfilms as Hitch was an icon and inspiration to many as you and manyothers know his movies left a lasting impact! However many may not knowthat a 1966 book was published called "Hitchcock/Truffaut" it was abook on cinema and how that the work of Alfred had influenced Frenchdirector and writer Truffaut. As during this film you the viewer get tohear the actual audio recordings of the interview for the book and seeclips from many of Hitch's films and it gives in detail Alfred'sbackground to the days even when he started in advertising. And ittalks about how Alfred saw the world as a one world view director asoften calling his actors and actresses cattle, clearly Alfred wasdemanding as discussed is how he shot his films with an emphasis onspace and geography. And anyone who's watched a lot of Hitchcock moviesknow that his camera work was top notch the way he did scenes at anglesthe documentary talks of this also. Aside from the clips and talk ofthe impact of his movies other well known directors talk about howAlfred influenced their work as in the film Wes Anderson, DavidFincher, and Richard Linklater to name a few give their take on Hitch.Overall good informative documentary that was an interesting look atthe master of suspense.
