About

In 1962, Hitchcock and Truffaut locked themselves away in Hollywood for a week to excavate the secrets behind the mise-en-scène in cinema. Based on the original recordings of this meeting – used to produce the mythical book Hitchcock/Truffaut – this film illustrates the greatest cinema lesson of all time and plummets the viewer into the world of the creator of Psycho, The Birds, and Vertigo. Hitchcock’s in­credibly modern art is elucidated and explained by today’s leading filmmakers: Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Arnaud Desplechin, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Wes Anderson, and others.
