Ne vous déplaise ,Jeanne Moreau is French whereas Mata was Javanese .But ,after all,why not?If it were not for her and Truffaut's script ,the movie would be completely forgotten (when it was aired yesterday on the cultural French channel,a lot of people had probably never heard about it.) Truffaut's script takes liberties with history,the love interest between Moreau and Trintignant was probably made from start to finish,or at least extremely embellished .
Truffaut had probably communicated his love for Hitchcock to the director;at least three scenes display that influence: Trintignant's briefcase tied to an armchair with handcuffs ,Moreau stealing documents in the officer's house,the crossing of the border.
Truffaut's favorites have cameos :Jean-Pierre Léaud(fortunately,his stint is brief,and I will be very grateful to him cause he does not utter a single world),Charles Denner,the lovely Marie Dubois (who had played the female supporting part in "Jules et Jim").
The last pictures show how romantic TRuffaut was!
