    About

    Truffaut's technique celebrates the small things in life, something that soon characterized the whole French New Wave, and was very influential with later French film directors such as Jean-Pierre Jeunet (Amelie).

    The film was shot on location in the town of Nîmes, in the south of France, notably in and around the town's Roman arena.
