Les Mistons

Les Mistons

Renoir said that you only really make one film, and every film made after that is a remake of it. Not sure if that is true but it could be the case for Truffaut. Every aspect of the Antoine films, among many others, is here: the awakening of sexual interest in boys, mischief, a feeling of leisurely trouble-making, school time, a nostalgic filter to adolescence. Homage to previous films appear as well as a few fun twists.
