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 perfomance 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.

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.

"01.01. DVD, 2nd viewing DIRECTED BY François Truffaut Watching this film is just a pure delight. It's loaded with iconic pictures, the camera seems to pan more gracefully than in most other films ever made, the grimy Paris looks fantastic, et cetera. The legendary soundtrack is lovely as well. I adore the film for successfully avoiding gloominess. Despite the poor conditions of the protagonist, the overall feel is optimistic, at least I felt that way. "
