Two of the greatest Italian critics, Alberto Crespi and Fabio Ferzetti, step into a virtual ring, but not too virtual, to compare, if necessary in a hard way, on two of the greatest directors of the Nouvelle Vague: François Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard. Starting from their biography and their thematic and stylistic choices, we will try to find the reasons for a break that marks the end of a friendship and a watershed in the French film movement. Of course, making the history of world cinema richer.
