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

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

"A really good film exploring multiply issues such as adolescence, law and order, education and family without being overbearing. This is a film that makes me say "I wish they still made movies like that." The film's plot is tight revolving around the coming of age of main character Antoine as he tries to maneuver through society. Lastly, I couldn't help but fall in love with his best friend Rene, the cheeky Gaul bastard. A must watch. 7.8/10"
