Aspects of the French Cinema
A series of four programmes on the younger generation of film-makers in France.
Introduced by Olivier Todd.

"I think the only thing common to the films I have made is that each of them is about someone who's in trouble... I don't like strong heroes. I don't like supermen. I'm interested in people as soon as they start to have problems."
In this programme, Francois Truffaut, one of the youngest major directors of the new French cinema, talks about his work.
