    The 400 Blows

    Antoine Doinel is a young boy growing up in Paris during the early 1950s. Misunderstood at home by his parents and tormented in school by his insensitive teacher, Antoine frequently runs away from both places. He decides to skip school and begins a downward spiral of lies and later stealing. His parents are at their wits end and after he';;s stopped by the police, they decide the best thing to do would be to let Antoine face the consequences. He';;s sent to a juvenile detention facility where he doesn';;t do much better.

    One of the first glistening droplets of the French New Wave.

    Seems forever young.

    Forget my curmudgeonly attitude and see it -- again, or for the first time -- for yourself.

    Village Voice

    A remarkable confluence of talents are at work here.

    Chicago Reader

    Distinguished by its intensity of feeling and freewheeling use of the wide-screen frame, the film ranks among Truffaut's best.

    July 09, 2007

    An engaging, moving film.

    October 29, 2015

    Truffaut imbues the movie with the irrepressible energy and optimism of youth.

    Childhood's frustrations for Truffaut are never far from its lilting delights
    November 28, 2014

    Francois Truffaut's debut film not only galvanized the Nouvelle Vague movement of French cinema, but he also generated a personal filmic idiom that he would elaborate on for the rest of his career.

    A rich and fascinating look at youth and its fleeting joys...

    Matt's Movie Reviews
    July 06, 2010

    Truffaut's ode to his childhood is an engrossing watch that is alluring in its simplicity and brilliant in its direction. It flows nicely at its own pace, never allowing melodrama to ruin its realistic and voyeuristic atmosphere.
    June 07, 2010

    Truffaut brought a fresh and piercingly honest portrayal of troubled youth to the screen. In many ways, Antonie Doinel is not only the cinematic embodiment of Truffaut, but also the French New Wave as a whole.
