Antoine et Colette U rating

François Truffaut’s wry, perceptive look at an inexperienced teenager’s first clumsy attempts at establishing a relationship with a more sophisticated young woman.

Drama 1962 30 mins

Director: François Truffaut

Overview

Now 16, Antoine (Jean-Pierre Leáud) works for a record company and frequents classical concerts, where he first notices Colette (Marie-France Pisier). A wry, witty, perceptive look at the inexperienced teenager’s first clumsy attempts at establishing a relationship with a rather more sophisticated young woman, the film reflects back on The 400 Blows and anticipates the development of the (sort- of) adult Antoine in Francois Truffaut’s later films.
