Day for Night follows the cast and crew during the filming of Je Vous Présente Paméla (Meet Pamela). Truffaut himself plays the director, Ferrand who faces many difficulties from many of his staff members, like from the old diva Severine (Valentina Cortese) who have troubles of remember her lines. Or the young and heart broken actor Alphonse (Jean-Pierre Léaud) who is about to run away from the set because of that. There's just some of the problems.
Day for Night is a good and well constructed meta film that has everything a movie set needs. All the details, all the props and all the three dimensional people as they are in the real life drama film that we all live in. And what's funny it's that at some point some of the characters says this will be the last film they make, something all of the staff perfectly understand without any form of upsets. Thumbs up.
