The 400 Blows

(Les Quatre Cents Coups)




A young Parisian boy, Antoine Doinel, neglected by his derelict parents, skips school, sneaks into movies, runs away from home, steals things and tries (disastrously) to return them. Like most kids, he gets into more trouble for things he thinks right than for his actual trespasses. Unlike most kids, he gets whacked.
