Metacinematographic movie with the great François Truffaut who plays himself.
Engaged in the making of a film in spite of repeatedly struck by bad luck.
Every kind of mishap seems to slow it down, from the tantrums of a stuntman to the cravings of a suitor for his lead actress.
A movie without filters, except that used to obtain a night effect in bright day from which the title comes.
Pure French avant-garde, told as a highly intelligent comedy about the small, great daily dramas of a film crew.
In addition, a mention for the beautiful Jacqueline Bisset and her touch of wonderful to each scenes.
