Stolen Kisses

Stolen Kisses

The third installment (including short film Antoine and Collette) in François Truffaut’s chronicle of the ardent Antoine Doinel (Jean-Pierre Léaud). The Doinel character's first appearance was in New Wave classic The 400 Blows.

"It is now 1968, and the mischievous and perpetually love-struck Doinel has been dishonourably discharged from the army and released onto the streets of Paris, where he stumbles into the unlikely profession of private detective and embarks on a series of misadventures. Whimsical, nostalgic, and irrepressibly romantic, Stolen Kisses is Truffaut’s timeless ode to the passion and impetuosity of youth." (Criterion)

The slice-of-life pic also has neat slices of observation, tasteful presentation and easeful acting that avoid banality.

A persuasively charming comedy.

A movie so full of love that to define it may make it sound like a religious experience, which, of course, it is—but in a wonderfully unorthodox, cockeyed way.

Often improvised and frequently charming and witty, Truffaut's film engages with a sad, dramatic and funny storyline that while not action packed keeps its pace and remains a classic today.
