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.
Antoine Doinel (Jean-Pierre Leaud) is a young man who lives with his ... read more

" 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. "
