The 400 Blows

The 400 Blows ★★★★★

"Sometimes I'd tell them the truth and they still wouldn't believe me, so I prefer to lie."

The 400 Blows is based on François Truffaut's childhood, follows the story of Antoine Doinel (Jean-Pierre Léaud). He's getting into trouble in school, his parents fight all the time and are hard on him, he lives in a low-income household and to make things even worse, discovers that his mother is having an affair with a co-worker. He tries to make ends meet, but nothing seems to work. It's the story of a young man's struggle in society and the consequences that befall him. Overall, it's a masterpiece.
