François Truffaut [fransua trifó] byl francouzský filmový režisér, který se na svých filmech podílel také jako producent, scénárista a herec. Byl jedním z hlavních představitelů Francouzské nové vlny, filmařů vzešlých z filmového časopisu Cahiers du Cinéma. Publikoval také několik knih o filmu, z nichž nejznámější je kniha rozhovorů s Alfredem Hitchcockem, nazvaná Rozhovory Hitchcock/Truffaut.


„Improvizace - to je, když naše přípravy nikdo nepozoruje.“

„Improvizace znamená, že naši přípravu nikdo nepozoroval.“


„Když jsem přišel do kina, jméno Jean Vigo mi nic neříkalo. Ale k jeho dílu, jehož celková délka tvoří necelých dvě stě minut, jsem záhy pocítil hluboký obdiv. “

„Film lovers are sick people.“

„In love, women are professionals, men are amateurs“

„But the cinephile is … a neurotic! (That’s not a pejorative term.) The Bronte sisters were neurotic, and it’s because they were neurotic that they read all those books and became writers. The famous French advertising slogan that says, “When you love life, you go to the movies,” it’s false! It’s exactly the opposite: when you don’t love life, or when life doesn’t give you satisfaction, you go to the movies.“

„Three films a day, three books a week and records of great music would be enough to make me happy to the day I die.“

„Today, I demand that a film express either theor the. I am not at all interested in anything in between; I am not interested in all those films that do not pulse.“ The Films in My Life


„I love the way she projects two facets: a visible persona and a subterranean one. She keeps her thoughts to herself; she seems to suggest that her secret, inner life is at least as significant as the appearance she gives.“

„Life has more imagination than we do.“

„I am the happiest man in the world and here's why: I walk down a street and I see a woman, not tall but well-proportioned, very dark-haired, very neat in her dress, wearing a dark skirt with deep pleats that swing with the rhythm of her rather quick steps; her stockings, of dark color, are carefully, impeccably smooth; her face is not smiling, this woman walks down the street without trying to please, as if she were unconscious of what she represented: a good carnal image of woman, a physical image, more than a sexy image, a sexual image. --Francois Truffaut, "Is Truffaut the Happiest Man on Earth? Yes," 1970“

„I'm an unstable psychotic individual with perverted tendencies"
-Juvenile Delinquent @Les Quatre Cents Coups“


„I am often asked at what point in my love affair with films I began to want to be a director or a critic. Truthfully, I don't know. All I know is that I wanted to get closer and closer to films.“ The Films in My Life

„Anyone can be a film critic. The apprentice supposedly need not possess a tenth of the knowledge that would be demanded of a critic of literature, music or painting. A director must live with the fact that his work will be called to judgment by someone who has never seen a film of Murnau’s.“ The Films in My Life

„To reproach Hitchcock for specializing in suspense is to accuse him of being the least boring of filmmakers; it is also tantamount to blaming a lover who instead of concentrating on his own pleasure insists on sharing it with his partner.“ Hitchcock: A Definitive Study of Alfred Hitchcock

„The camera should never anticipate what’s about to follow.“ Hitchcock
