One of classics that festoon Truffaut's oeuvre, the critically lauded "La Nuit" took the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film in 1974 and went on to be nominated for three more Oscars in 1975 .These are the assets Ferrand must cajole into making a movie.A diverse range of prominent comedies and dramas have emerged in the past couple of decades whose plots involve films-within-a-film.This past year alone witnessed the release of two high-profile, critically feted movies on this theme – Olivier Assayas' drama "Clouds of Sils Maria" and Alejandro Gonz?lez I??rritu's comedy "Birdman". Arguably the prototype for the self-reflexive film-within-a-film is Fellini's 1963 classic "8 ½". Though it speaks a completely different film dialect than "La Nuit," Fellini's film tells the story of a filmmaker struggling to make a movie. Though its dominant mode is comic, "La Nuit" isn't a proper comedy.Repetition is another way to de-nature a comic sequence and this movie -- set during a film shoot, where dialogue and gestures are endlessly repeated -- gives Truffaut ample opportunity to toy with that.
