THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF ANTOINE DOINEL
MUST END THURSDAY, OCTOBER 13
Truffaut’s THE 400 BLOWS not only introduced the world to its precocious director—it also unveiled his indelible creation: Antoine Doinel. Closely modeled after Truffaut himself, the Doinel character, played by the incomparable Jean-Pierre Léaud, reappeared in four subsequent films over the next 20 years that knowingly portrayed his myriad frustrations and romantic entanglements from his stormy teens through marriage, children, divorce, and adulthood.
“Antoine's story has become an autobiography, not of Truffaut's life, but of his art."
– Vincent Canby, The New York Times
“The five Antoine films are not only a photographic record of the maturation of a director, an actor and a character over a period of two decades, but they are a kind of log-book for a voyage through the fictional processes begun with THE 400 BLOWS."
– Roger Ebert
