A coming-of-age tale to rival the very best, trailblazing auteur Francois Truffaut's The 400 Blows not only launched the Nouvelle Vogue, but paved the way for some of cinemas most important and influential directors.

Lifted from Trufaut's own life experiences, as told through the eyes of twelve year-old Antoine Doinel (Jean-Piere Leaud), The 400 Blows details the youngster's troubles at home and at school. Ignored and neglected by his parents, his relationship with his mother is further strained when he discover that she has taken a secret lover. Added to this, his school teachers have written him off as a troublemaker and with luck seemingly never on his side, it is Antoine who ends up getting the blame for bad behaviour. Finding refuge, only in his love of cinema, Antoine soon finds it necessary to break free, and discover what the world can offer outside of the confines of his everyday life.
