The 400 Blows


Antoine Doinel, played impeccably by Jean-Pierre Léaud, serves as Truffaut's cinematic counterpart, in a world filled with aloof parents and oppressive teachers. Writing a new cinematic language, Truffaut captures the difficulty of transitioning out of childhood and into adolescences with a stunning realism.
