THE FILM LOVER: A FRANÇOIS TRUFFAUT RETROSPECTIVE
Antoine Doinel / Jean-Pierre Léaud Double Feature!
THE 400 BLOWS / STOLEN KISSES
Co-presented by the French Film and TV office in Los Angeles, French Embassy
THE 400 BLOWS
LES QUATRE CENTS COUPS
1959, Janus Films , 99 min, France, Dir: François Truffaut

Jean-Pierre Léaud plays a young boy struggling against the constrictions of bourgeois conformity in this deeply personal masterpiece. Both a coming-of-age classic and the greatest feature debut since Welles’ CITIZEN KANE 18 years earlier, this, along with Godard’s BREATHLESS, is one of the films that announced the arrival of the French New Wave to an international cinema audience. In French with English subtitles.


STOLEN KISSES
BAISERS VOLÉS
1968, Janus Films, 90 min, France, Dir: François Truffaut

In the third Antoine Doinel film, Antoine (Jean-Pierre Léaud) returns to Paris after a dishonorable discharge from the army. He finds himself trying a series of ridiculous jobs (including private detective) as he falls hopelessly in love. Lyrical and nostalgic, this is one of Truffaut’s most romantic films, which is really saying something. With Delphine Seyrig. In French with English subtitles.
