Counting down to the Oscars...

There has never been a bigger fan of movies who actually managed to make them than François Truffaut. Each of his films feel like a love letter to cinema and none of these letters was better written than La Nuit Américaine. The film, named after the process for shooting night scenes in the day (better known as Day For Night in English), won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language film in 1974 and was nominated for three more awards in 1975.
