This chapter is about André Téchiné, whose sixteen feature films to date include a range of low- and high-budget productions. Among these films, some involve major stars of the French cinema, some a cast of unknowns, some highly successful in terms of the box office, some far less so. Téchiné is a particularly interesting case for auteur study in that there seems to be a major break in 1981, when his films became less experimental and more mainstream, inaugurating a realist, novelistic cinema which continues to this day. However, his first filmmaking experience emerged from a theatrical milieu. In 1969, Téchiné was assistant director of Jacques Rivette's L'Amour fou. It was around this time that he conceived and began to shoot his first feature film, Paulina s'en va. The chapter also explores Téchiné's other feature film, such as Les Soeurs Brontë (1979) and Souvenirs d'en France (1975). Téchiné's first four features are striking for the differences between them and the departures each makes from its predecessor.
