The 400 Blows (PG) S

The most autobiographical of François Truffaut’s films, The 400 Blows follows a few months in the life of 12-year-old Antoine Doinel (Jean-Pierre Léaud) who, misunderstood and mistreated by his neglectful parents and repressive schoolteachers, seeks refuge in truancy, petty crime and the cinema.

"It's a cornerstone of the French New Wave, and one of the greatest movies about childhood, from anywhere, ever." ★★★★★ - The Independent
