The movie becomes a wonder of archival randomness.

The lack of key interviews gradually becomes a problem (Truffaut died in 1984) and the final stretch becomes curiously shapeless.

Laurent glosses over the contributions of other New Wavers, such as Eric Rohmer, Claude Chabrol and Agnes Varda. Laurent's biggest mistake is inserting Isild Le Besco, a wonderful contemporary actress, into Two in the Wave.

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.
| Original Score: 3/5

Laurent knows the facts of his subject, but he loses the emotional thread amid all the flimsy homage.
