THE ANTOINE DOINEL SAGA FOR THE FIRST TIME IN SINGLE 4K UHD AND BLU-RAY EDITIONS!
“FRANÇOIS TRUFFAUT TEACHED ME MY ACTOR TRADE AND HE ABOVE ALL TEACHED ME THE ESSENTIAL: THE LOVE OF CINEMA. » JEAN-PIERRE LÉAUD
Antoine Doinel is fourteen years old. In class, he keeps getting in trouble with his schoolmaster, who punishes him for writing on the classroom walls. At home, his parents are indifferent to him, and do not know what to do with him during the holidays. Not having done his punishment, Antoine skips school with his friend René and surprises his mother in the arms of her lover. The life of young Antoine is announced under the sign of lies and resourcefulness.
“I had a wonderful chance to come across this kid. He was the character. Even better: he improved the film. I saw Antoine more fragile, fiercer, less aggressive, Jean-Pierre gave him his health, his aggressiveness, his courage. He was a valuable collaborator. Spontaneously he found the true gestures, corrected the text, always with accuracy, and he used the words he wanted to use. – Francois Truffaut
