Hello

I have a mock speaking exam next week and I'm hoping that someone who has experience with AQA French at A2 can help me out. One of the cultural topics I will be talking about the work of a film director (Truffaut, more specifically), however I'm having trouble thinking of what sort of questions are going to be asked. Can anybody tell me the sorts of questions they were asked in their exam? I'm currently brainstorming ideas for the techniques he used, the characters in his films, and his influences.

Sounds like you're on the right path. At A2 you will probably be asked to compare main characters from different films, or to discuss recurrent themes. In Truffaut's case, you might also be asked to what extent his films have autobiographical elements.

At a more sophisticated level, you could be asked about how the techniques Truffaut used mirror the narrative.

You could also be asked why Truffaut has become such an important film director - i.e. in what ways was he truly original, and what did he do then that has now become common?

Hope this helps focus some of your ideas. Bon courage!
