François Truffaut - Rotten Tomatoes

François Truffaut

Birthday:  
Birthplace:   Paris, France
Never met his biological father. Joined the French Army in 1950 at age 18. As a film critic was notorious for unflinching reviews of films he did not like and of the state of French cinema in general. So much so, he was the only French film critic not invited to the Cannes Film Festival in 1958.  Influential proponent, along with Andre Bazin, of the auteur theory of filmmaking. Alfred Hitchcock was his favorite director. Starred in Close Encounters of the Third Kind in 1977.
