Once the Prince Charming of the French cinema, Truffaut latterly carried his talent for crowd-pleasing to the brink of turning into an Ugly Sister. Watching this smugly hermetic tale of the artistic pangs suffered by a French theatre company under the German Occupation in World War II, you would never guess that films like The Sorrow and the Pity and Lacombe Lucien had irretrievably lifted the lid off those years. Playing for cute nostalgia, Truffaut lets the realities go to hell.

Agree with John not your reviewer whose review will put people off watching a film that stands the test of time and make its point clearer by making it in an understated way
