Francois Truffaut

Director Francois Truffaut was born in France in 1932 and was going to be one of the most important directors and founders of New Wave.

The passion, the difficult childhood he lived, the women and the faith are the main themes of his films, which are characterized by a realistic sadness that loved the audiences and critics, won Oscars and gave a new identity to French cinema.

Both his character and his cinematic talent are presented in Taschen’s photographic book through rare photographs that should not be missed by the collection of any cinema lover.
