"BEHIND THE SCENES OF THE LAST METRO " DIRECTED BY JÉRÔME WYBON
" The Last Metro will be neither a film about the theater nor a film about the Occupation but a story of "love and adventure". ‒ François Truffaut and Suzanne Schiffman
This unpublished work directed by Jérôme Wybon is a rich and precious testimony on The Last Metro , a renaissance film for François Truffaut. Composed of numerous archival documents and contemporary texts around the work, Behind the Scenes of the Last Metro attempts to understand what led the filmmaker to undertake this colossal project, with very personal themes. A book embellished with 50 archival photos, most unpublished, taken by the set photographer Jean-Pierre Fizet.
