... a loving tribute to the two artists whose names will forever be associated with the Nouvelle Vague and the friendship that bonded them for so many years.
February 14, 2011
It's a dramatic story, somewhat over-simplified, but accompanied by riveting archive material.

The early shots of young Léaud's open, beaming face are desperately sad.

Laurent's brushstrokes always feel a little too broad to capture the finer details of the legendary New Wavers, but some fascinating archive footage saves his documentary from missing the mark altogether.

I love all this stuff, and it's really interesting to hear it all told again in a new way, and one thing that Laurent does well is that he refuses to side with either Godard or Truffaut in their feud.

The movie becomes a wonder of archival randomness.

...a cinema buff's dream that, while flawed, not only boasts some great content but the unusual idea of 'starring' Isild Le Besco, a budding director herself, as a cinema student who 'guides' us through the material.

A tribute that also serves as an introduction ... For those of us already in the know, the film plays like a passionate return to a great conversation.

Wisely resists the temptation to invite them to share memories of youth. Rather, it gathers newspaper clippings, newsreel footage and movie clips to assemble a present-tense essay that is both time capsule and collage.

Two in the Wave makes for a richly detailed footnote to a golden age and stillgolden principles. But it's also a winning and necessary corrective to our current barbarous culture.

An anniversary present for the new wave.
May 18, 2010
Rare film clips are the highlight of this chronicle of the friendship and falling out of French New Wave icons Jean-Luc Godard and François Truffaut.
February 10, 2011
Two in the Wave lacks those very qualities for which it applauds Truffaut and Godard: poetry, ideas and feistiness.
