A most underrated and under-appreciated film. Intensely melancholic, this is a science-fiction film of understatement, featuring one of the most beautiful scores to one of the most beautiful final passages I can recall. The film seems to slip in and out of focus, in and out of its own story and its this dazed and dreamy tone that makes it such an indelible experience. Truffaut's only work in English, (and the language disconnect appears only to help the dislocated atmosphere), this is a film that will linger long in your memory.
