Making a Film in a Tribute to the Cinema
In Nice, the Studios La Victorine is producing the film “Je Vous Presente Pamela”, about a French man that marries the English Pamela in England and brings his wife to France to introduce her to his parents. However, his father and Pamela fall in love with each other and she leaves her husband to live with her father-in-law. The producer Bertrand (Jean Champion) and the director Ferrand (François Truffaut) invite the British Julie Baker (Jacqueline Bisset), who had a nervous breakdown and married her Dr. Nelson (David Markham), to the role of Pamela.
Along the shooting, the cast and crew are lodged in the Hotel Atlantic and Bertrand and Ferrand have to deal with problems with the stars Severine (Valentina Cortese), an aging artist with drinking problems that affect her performance; the immature, spoiled and needy Alphonse (Jean-Pierre Léaud); Julie that is emotionally unstable. But in the end, they succeed to complete the film.
“La Nuit Américaine” is a film about making a film and a great tribute to the cinema. This is one of my favorite Truffaut’s films and the last time I saw it was on 08 January 2001.
It is impossible to highlight performances in this film, but the mesmerizing beauty of Jacqueline Bisset shines. Jean-Pierre Léaud performs his usual role of an insecure man, using the same gestures of Antoine Doinel.
In 1992, Louis Malle explored the storyline of “Je Vous Presente Pamela” in “Damage”. My vote is nine.
Title (Brazil): “A Noite Americana” (“The American Night”)
A Movie Lover’s Movie
A bright airy laughter filled film is only accented by moments of tragedy as a cadre of filmmakers overcome obstacles, even when those obstacles are themselves, in order to create a work of art. Usually, I’m about 50/50 on movies about movies but this one had me because it was more about the process of film making and why it is so addictive to those who do it.
There is no other craft like it and the relationships you form with the people you do it with are some of the deepest and most trust driven you can experience. I met my co-conspirator on True Myth Media, Seth Steele, on the first feature film we ever worked on and it is a frequent struggle for the loved ones of such addicted artists that they feel like they are competing for love with a movie.
This film shows why that is in a whimsical yet technical way, showing the diversity of roles and personalities one encounters on a production. The number of times I thought to myself as watching this movie, “Oh man, that reminds me of so-and-so,” is high. It was a bit of a nostalgia trip making me long for home. My home away from home. My cheap hotels, long hours, stolen moments, and the crescendo of wrapping.
What is there to say about the acting, cinematography, and production design? It’s a love letter to film making by a master film maker and his team of film makers. Of course, it is wonderful all ’round. It’s failures are the failures of romantic poetry. The heart is on the sleeve and no one is ashamed to say how they feel.
When I finished it, I was torn between wanting to write, wanting to find out if there is a production gearing up, or trying to get my family to watch this film. I landed on recommending it to all of you; my film family and friends. For you to see and understand a piece of my passion for film making and hopefully how it mirrors those things for which you have passion.
