Summary:
The leading lady is recovering from a nervous breakdown, another performer is soused on the set, trade unions threaten to walk, shooting must somehow finish before the insurance lapses and a cat needed in a scene can't hit its mark. Is this any way to make a movie? "Day for night" is François Truffaut's sly humorous bouquet to movies and the people who make them.
