Moynihan European Research Centers Present the Film: Les quatre cents coups- The 400 Blows

Les quatre cents coups tells the story of a young Parisian boy, Antoine Doinel, who neglected by his derelict parents, skips school, sneaks into movies, runs away fro home, steals things, and tries (disastrously) to return them. Like most kids, he gets into more trouble for things he thinks are right than for his actual trespasses unlike most kids, he gets whacked with the big stick. He inhabits a Paris of dingy flats, seedy arcades, abandoned factories, and workaday streets, a city that seems big and full of possibilities only to a child’s eye. (
