He holds affection for Francois Truffaut and a hearty contempt for Jean-Luc Godard.
Does it simply mean he likes Truffaut but not Godard?
Thanksssss.

    It almost means that, except the feelings are are extreme. He does like Francois Truffaut. A "hearty contempt" means something like a "very strong disrespect". He thought very badly of Godard.
