Synopsis
"400 Blows" marks the birth of legendary nouvelle vague character Antoine Doinel; his is the story of a 13-year-old wild child whose adventures were based on the Francois Truffaut's own adolescence. The rest of Antoine's became the stuff from which Truffaut fashioned several fables about growing-up movie-wise.
