Day for Night is a billet-doux to movies, movie-making and movie personae – to movie-movies made in and around studios with lots of extras and sets and props and prima donnas of all ages and sexes, the like of which, alas, we may not see again….it is a Truffaut movie and therefore universal in its sheer humanism, its exuberance, its tragi-comic view of people and events and completely irresistible in its sheer love of the life it leads.” Judith Crist
