the 400 blows
Director: François Truffaut
Starring: Jean-Pierre Léaud, Claire Maurier, Albert Rémy, Guy DecombleIn Brief: François Truffaut's first feature The 400 Blows (1959) struck a blow of its own as the first of the New Wave films — movies that came as a reaction to what was perceived as the stodginess of classical French filmmaking (and filmmaking around the world for that matter). It was a movement that would change film as we knew it, and it really started with this largely autobiographical coming-of-age story. The New Wave would make better movies — some by Truffaut — but perhaps none so warmly accessible as this one.
