Aro Recommended 400 Blows, The


France 1959, 101 minutes
Dir. Francois Truffaut
In French with English subtitles
Rating: [M]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama, Classics / Youth

Topics: Nouvelle Vague, Rites-of-passage.


Aroview: Truffaut's first film rocketed him to fame as some kind of New Wave radical, but at a second glance this story of a teenage delinquent thrown in and out of borstal is suprisingly gentle and even-handed. Title is French term for "raising hell".
