Day for Night Academy Award Winner! Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! 

By Tom Keogh

François Truffaut's lavish and fun 1973 comedy-drama about a film production is a clever hall of mirrors, with Truffaut himself playing a director, and his most important actor in real life, Jean-Pierre Léaud (The 400 Blows), portraying Jacqueline Bisset's immature costar. Day for Night is full of tales undoubtedly told out of school and repeated here in camouflage, and one can't help but be impressed with the stylistic and technical means by which Truffaut captures the adventurousness of a full-budget shoot. The cast is very good all around, with actors in some cases playing fictional thespians and in other cases playing members of the crew. A sequence set to thrilling music by Georges Delerue celebrates the whole art of filmmaking as seen from an editor's perspective--it makes one want to drop everything and shoot a film of one's own.

Academy Awards

Day for Night received an Academy Award for Foreign Language Film Award. Day for Night also received Academy Awards nominations for Supporting Actress (Valentina Cortese), Directing (François Truffaut) and Writing (Best Original Screenplay; François Truffaut, Jean-Louis Richard, Suzanne Schiffman).
