Clocking in at 195 minutes, the documentary is a cinephile’s dream, as Tavernier gives his own perspective at French filmmakers who have made an impact on his own moviegoing life. “I wanted to grateful, to say thank you to a lot of people,” said Tavernier, whose own credits include ‘Round Midnight and Safe Conduct. “Filmmakers, writers, and composers who have given me so many joys and illuminated my life. This is not about French cinema. This is about my vision on some French films and filmmakers. Though the documentary has candid insight and personal reminisces on such luminaries as Jean-Pierre Melville, Jean-Luc Godard and Jean Gabin, it also spotlights lesser known (but just as talented) artists as actor Eddie Constantine (he starred in Godard’s Alphaville) and director Edmond T. Gréville (Secret Lives, But Not In Vain). Along with providing viewers an immersive look at French film, the documentary also gives us a deeper look into Tavernier’s continuing passion for cinema. “The more I went into filmmaking, the more I discovered things, my admiration grew (for cinema),” said Tavernier. “When I saw the difficulty I had making some films, I became totally (impressed) of how some people like Jacques Becker, Henri-Georges Clouzot or Jean Renoir really got their film made in spite of a lot of things.
