Francois Truffaut

Title sequences from feature films directed by François Truffaut (1932 – 1984) released on blu-ray.

The title sequences from films of some of France’s most well known directors have not all been treated well while making the transition to blu-ray. In four cases the typefaces have been replaced with Arial, a typeface that didn’t exist when the films were released: Les Deux Anglaises et le Continent (1971), Une belle fille comme moi (1972), L’Argent de Poche (1976).
