Night Owl

Confidentially Yours

Viewed: 31 January 2003
Directed by: FranÁois Truffaut
Listed in: Movies, Netflix

Truffaut's last film, a homage to Alfred Hitchcock. Unfortunately I watched the film at the end of a very long day, and therefore barely stayed conscious for the plot let alone the many nuances of the film. It seems timeless, it was made in 1983 but filmed in black and white. It never really seemed a particular time period, the story was straight out of 40ís noir, with French sex jokes and the happenstance of French new wave. I canít say it really struck me as Hitchcockian, thou I never considered his films true noir. Good, Iíll have to watch it again when I am more awake.
