Two in the Wave

Review score: * * * * *

cast: Isild Le Besco

year: 2011

colour: yes

certificate: TBC

director: Emmanuel Laurent, Antoine de Baecque

runtime: 91

Very like the cinephiles-turned-auteurs of the French New Wave, director, producer and Godard enthusiast Emmanuel Laurent taught himself filmmaking partly by frequenting the front row of the Paris Cinémathèque. It's appropriate, then, that his latest documentary focuses on the volatile relationship of Truffaut and Godard, as he revisits an era of extraordinary cinematic invention and influence.

BFI Southbank will be welcoming Emmanuel Laurent to discuss those heady times following this preview of his film.
