Genres: Drama
Starring: Jean-PIerre Leaud
Director: Francois Truffaut
Plot Sypnosis:
The unforgettable debut feature by François Truffaut is a wrenchingly personal coming-of-age story that introduced the character that would become the director's lifelong cinematic counterpart, Antoine Doinel (Jean-Pierre Léaud, in one of the screen's great child performances). With the utmost sensitivity, The 400 Blows dramatizes the trials of Truffaut's own difficult childhood, characterized by aloof parents, oppressive teachers, and petty crime. The film marks its maker's official transition from influential critic to one of Europe's most brilliant auteurs, and is considered the first true work of the French New Wave.
