    Excellent! However, according to the New Wave Film Encyclopedia ( http://www.newwavefilm.com/french-new-wave-encyclopedia/francois-truffaut.shtml ), these films are all after 1969 -- and after the New Wave really. Why not show at least one of Truffaut's earlier films? I've always wanted to see The Story of Water and The Bride Wore Black.
