Why Spielberg did chose a French guy (French Director Francois Truffaut) as visionnaire character in “Close encounters of the Third Kind”? March 20, 2011Posted by Phil Jeudy in Uncategorized.
The answer came from Philippe Bossut: “Because at the time the movie was made, the most influential expert on UFO was Jacques Vallée, a French scientist living in the US. Also, Spielberg was a fan of Truffaut’s approach to movies”.
