Die amerikanische Nacht ein Film für Menschen, die Filme lieben = Truffaut's "Day for Night" by François Truffaut( visu )
7 editions published between 1972 and 2002 in German and Undetermined and held by 16 libraries worldwide
Die Dreharbeiten zu einem Spielfilm in den Studios von Nizza werden von organisatorischen Schwierigkeiten und menschlichen Verwicklungen gefährdet (der aus den USA angereiste weibliche Star leidet an Liebeskummer, ein Hauptdarsteller verunglückt tödlich), aber mit viel Geduld, Fleiß und Stehvermögen gelingt es dem Regisseur und seinem Team, das Projekt zu einem guten Ende zu bringen. In einer wohldosierten Mischung aus Tragik und Heiterkeit inszeniert Truffaut, der selbst in der Rolle des Regisseurs zu sehen ist, einen mitreißenden Geschichtenreigen um die Ereignisse vor und hinter der Kamera: Eine sich leichtgewichtig gebende, tatsächlich jedoch mit großer stilistischer Virtuosität gestaltete Liebeserklärung an das Filmemachen und an die Wunderwelt des Kinos schlechthin - wobei die Grenzen zwischen Spiel und Wirklichkeit zuweilen zu verschwinden scheinen. Für Kenner ein Leckerbissen
