LES DEUX DE LA VAGUE
(TWO OF THE NEW WAVE)Two of the Wave will evolve around the tempestuous friendship, both professional and personal, between Truffaut and Godard, the main pillars of the French New Wave. From 1959 to 1962 the French New Wave represents the biggest influx of renewal ever before encountered in the history of world cinema. It was the first movement in the history of movie making to have stylised, in present tense, the world in wich its contemporaries lived. What happened was unique : a two-fold recognition- a new generation of filmgoers who were called the « new wave » in surveys, magazine and newpapers- which found itself in sympathy with an idea and a pratice of cinema- which was named the « New Wave » in cinema history.
