Hitchcock-Truffaut-2015-3

In 1962 Francois Truffaut persuaded Alfred Hitchcock to sit with him for a week-long interview in which the great British auteur would share with his young admirer the secrets of his cinema. Based on the original recordings of this meeting – used to produce the seminal book ‘Hitchcock/Truffaut’, the film illustrates the greatest cinema lesson of all time and plunges us into the world of the creator of Psycho, The Birds and Vertigo.
