The Friendship that Defined French Cinema

Comprised of rarely-seen archival footage and interviews with Jean-Luc Godard and François Truffaut, Two in the Wave is the story of a unique and ultimately destructive friendship.

Jean-Luc Godard was born in 1930; Francois Truffaut two years later. Love of movies brings them together. They write in the same magazines, Cahiers du Cinema and Arts. When the younger of the two becomes a filmmaker with The 400 Blows, which triumphs in Cannes in 1959, he helps his older friend shift to directing, offering him the screenplay for what would become Godard's triumphant debut, Breathless. Through the 1960s the two loyally support each other but, in 1968, they are torn apart when Godard plunges into radical politics while Truffaut continues his career as before. Between the two of them, the actor Jean-Pierre Léaud is torn like a child caught between two separated and warring parents. This is the story of the French New Wave.
