In this frank and far-reaching book, Malle discusses his development as an artist; the often fierce controversies aroused by pictures dealing with prostitution, incest and wartime collaboration; the momentous year spent shooting his Phantom India series; and his decision to move to America in the 1970s. He also talks about the recurrent themes of his films, his passion for jazz, and his work with actors and actresses ranging from such stars as Jeanne Moreau and Burt Lancaster to the nonprofessional teenagers who appear in Lacombe, Lucien and Au revoir les enfants. The basis of the book is a series of conversations between Malle and Philip French, one of the most distinguished film critics in Britain, who provides an indispensable guide to Louis Malle's career.
