31/2* The world behind movie set. Love, sex, and confusion reign. Title refers to lighting a film in daytime and make it appear as night.
One of the best Truffaut. So modern, so spontaneous, so passionate, so inspirational. A love letter to cinema and the people who make them.
So genious. It's like Birdman before Birdman. The camera is always in motion always engaging. The premise is also entertainingly unique
