One of the most personal films directed by Bertrand Tavernier, in 'A Journey Through French Cinema' we can watch the director's life through 94 movies. Also, it guide us through the french cinema, watching references to big artist like Brigitte Bardot, François Truffaut, Jean Gabin, Jean Luc Godard, Jean Renoir or Marcel Carno. A lot of them are big icons of the Nouvelle Vague, one of the most important movements in the french cinema. Here, we can see parts of a lot of differents films, all im black and white. It's an interesting collage that was released in Cannes Film Festival in 2016.
