Audience Reviews for Two in the Wave

  • Apr 27, 2012
    The best parts of the otherwise forgettable documentary "Two in the Wave" are the older footage and interviews with Jean-Luc Godard and Francois Truffaut, in trying to explore their influences and films, as they encouraged each other and occasionally worked together in the 1960's. Sadly, there is little new material of interest here for us students of film and almost no current interviews.(Admittedly, I had never heard of "Les Carabiniers" before this.) And as easy as Isild Le Besco is on the eyes, I'm not that sure what she is supposed to be doing here. To be honest, I don't think I would recommend this documentary to the uninitiated, either, as it takes a simplistic view towards the friendship between Godard and Truffaut and their films. For example, Truffaut who is depicted as being totally apolitical did make an adaptation of "Fahrenheit 451."(I read the book but never saw the movie.) By comparison, Godard was off the deep end politically early on with "Le Petit Soldat" which marks the first appearance of the Little Red Book in his films. Well, he did say that he wanted to alienate his audience...but he probably did not need radical politics to do so, and that might not be the only reason for the split with his former collaborator.

    Francois truffaut, and Jaean-luc godard, were the pioneers in the french new wave movement, not only 2 people sharing a love of movies, but great friends from a young age, they worked together, on various projects while influencing each other in many ways, truffauts 400 blows, making ways and in turn having the chance to get godard his start as well, this doc shows in unconventional ways their friendship, and working methods and of course french and world cinema in general, but also their friendship ended bitterly with politics and filmmaking coming to heads and one person going one way, the other not changing paths, we see all this, and it comes together well, a interesting telling of film history, and finally how two greats can simply have dividing opinions. i like both filmmakers films, although not seen all. and it certainly sparked my interest again in discovering more of there work.

    If you love the French New Wave movies and filmmakers and specifically Godard and Truffaut, 'Two in the Wave' is worth a watch. It's not a great documentary, discounts so much you lose track, but the interviews and speeches from the subjects are sure to please fans. The collage way of making a documentary results in a mixed-bag but what other way could this have been done?
