A delightful treat for all lovers of early French cinema. I hope there will be a follow-up to bring the history up to date.

Betrand Tavernier is a french cineaste thru and thru. He was a nouvelle vague man and he nows where all the emotions and clips are to be found.
This a very compressed and detailed documentary, personal and selective. Very enjoyable, I need really to have a copy to go back and forwards and rewind the parts I couldn't keep up with. Its hard to read subtitles and watch all the clips at the same moment!
