Love On the Run (Truffaut, 1979): BFI Sothbank, NFT2, 8.40pm

This film is part of the Francois Truffaut season at BFI Southbank.

Chicago Reader review:
Francois Truffaut took a few steps toward modernism with this very self-conscious experiment in narrative form (1979). It’s not so much another episode in the Antoine Doinel cycle as a reflection on it, using extensive clips from the previous features to examine the ways in which art devours life—a theme that has always been present in Truffaut’s autobiographical cinema, but never so directly stated. Still, the results are more interesting than satisfying; it is a film more thought than felt. With Jean-Pierre Leaud, Marie-France Pisier, and Claude Jade.
