A great classic

It has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it whenever I have the opportunity. To be honest, in the same genre, I always preferred 'A bout de souffle' but this one is not far behind and it is definitely a huge masterpiece as well. By now, I have seen a bunch of the movies directed by François Truffaut’s movies and even though he had a more satisfying caree... read more

Adolescence is a difficult time for any child. It does not matter where you grow up or in what era. The period between childhood and adulthood is fraught with awkwardness and insecurity. Francois Truffaut's "The 400 Blows" examines the life of one such child as he takes his first baby steps toward a new stage in his life.

Very classic French film. Message is very deep. It's one of the most must-see movies of all time. Ah, Children.

Intensely touching story of a misunderstood young adolescent who left without attention, delves into a life of petty crime.

" Note : I always prefered 'À bout de souffle' but this one is a huge masterpiece aswell. In my opinion, it is definitely Truffaut's best movie and Jean-Pierre Léaud gives probably the best child performance ever. Nothing much happen storywise but it doesn't matter as the whole thing is just spellbinding. It is a great classic and a must-see for any movie fan. "

He has his troubles but is not really a bad child - he is just a confused boy looking for adventure, attention, and guidance. However, a serious error in judgment leads Antoine to steal a typewriter and he is sent off to a juvenile detention home. He eventually escapes his confinement and heads for the beach.
