Immediately prior to his death in 1984, Francois Truffaut returned to Two English Girls, reinserting 24 minutes cut from the theatrical release 12 years earlier. The restored footage was of a picnic scene, an homage to Truffaut's idol Jean Renoir, recalling the elder filmmaker's A Day in the Country and Picnic on the Grass. The restoration is more notable, however, as a clue to the significance of Two English Girls-the film was thoroughly personal and haunted its maker years after its completion. For viewers now, the film resonates with the obsessions of love and passion that preoccupied much of Truffaut's work, and appear here in one of Truffaut's most visually stunning and sexually provocative films.
