Finally, Truffaut
1 January 2007 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Finally, Truffaut. Back in 1983 I saw a screening at a festival that was supposed to be introduced by Francois Truffaut. On the day an apologetic Fanny Ardant turned up instead, apologising that the director was feeling a little ill and was not up to travelling: in fact, he had just been diagnosed with the brain tumour that would kill him a few months later, and Vivemant Dimanche! aka Finally, Sunday/Confidentially Yours would turn out to be his last film. It works better on the big screen than the small, but it's still an immensely likable little number that brings Francois Truffaut's career almost full circle to the kind of black and white semi-noir he championed as a critic. It's one of Truffaut's most purely cinematic films – while much of it is dialogue driven, there are few of the awkward literary conceits that he would resort to in some of his "tell, don't show" movies like Two English Girls, instead letting the character interaction and the loving black and white visuals speak for themselves. Most of all, it has a real sense of fun that even a brief melancholy reflection on the difference between death – something definite - and murder – something almost abstract – can detract from, whether it's Fanny Ardant's knocking out a suspect with a miniature Eiffel Tower or treating the fugitive Jean-Louis Tritignant to a view of her legs as she passes the window to the office he is hiding in, and there's a great joke about Paths of Glory. It goes a little over the top at the end, but by then you'll have had so much fun you'll gladly forgive it almost anything. And the last shot is a delightfully sweet and playful epitaph to a life in movies as a group of children kick a camera lens around a church during a wedding to the accompaniment of Georges Delerue's charmingly catchy music.

Cinema Club's UK DVD is a very nice transfer with a likable, affectionate and informative audio commentary by Jean-Louis Tritignant recorded for the French DVD a few years ago.
