LOCO London Comedy Film Festival - Love On The Run

Before there was Boyhood, there was Antoine Doinel. Between 1959 and 1979, director François Truffaut and actor Jean-Pierre Léaud collaborated on four feature films and one short that followed the life of Antoine Doinel from his stormy teens through marriage, children, divorce, and adulthood. By turns funny, furious, deeply moving, desperately romantic and always enchanting, it’s a story that mirrors the lives, loves, debates and dilemmas of its creators, and an essential element of the French New Wave.

As part of our Liberté, Égalité, Hilarité celebration of French comedy, here’s a rare chance to see the complete adventures of Antoine Doinel. 

In the final chapter of the saga, Antoine is enjoying success as a novelist. Newly divorced, he is once again free to fall in love, and in his search for new romance finds himself revisiting his past loves, and past choices.
