The 400 Blows
Mar 7-10  |  1959  |  France  |  François Truffaut  |  French and English languages  |  99 min

Considered to be one of the most important films in world cinema, François Truffaut’s first feature film is one of the most intensely touching stories ever made about a young adolescent. Told from the point of view of Truffaut’s cinematic counterpart, Antoine, The 400 Blows sensitively re-creates the trials of Truffaut’s own childhood, unsentimentally portraying aloof parents, oppressive teachers, and petty crime. The film marked Truffaut’s passage from leading film critic to trailblazing auteur of the French New Wave. 1959 Cannes Film Festival: Best Director; 1959 New York Film Critics Circle Awards: Best Foreign Language Film. Read more on IMDb.
