All the Ships at Sea - Spot the Movie References!

Obviously, Sallitt was thinking of the great Pialat when he created this dedication, but he also tried to emulate the beautiful dedications in the films of Francois Truffaut, which are removed from the screen almost before the audience has registered them.

This is a still from the set of Pialat's last movie Le Garçu, with Géraldine Pailhas and Gérard Depardieu.  Sallitt learned on his last movie that it is a bad idea to emulate Pialat.  Pialat could do the things that he did because he was Pialat.  No one else can do them.
