    I'm trying to say, "Truffaut had lifelong friendships with like-minded people"

    I've got "Truffaut avait les amitiés de toute une vie avec les gens des mêmes avis."

    I'm especially unsure about the last bit: "des mêmes avis" seems a bit more specific than "like-minded", which means more generally similar, the same way of thinking, not necessarially exactly the same opinions per se.

    What would you recommend?

    Like-minded: aux vues similaires, de même mentalité, de même esprit, animés des mêmes idées, homodoxes... :)
