LOCO London Comedy Film Festival - Bed And Board
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 fourh film or our saga Antoine is now married, with a baby on the way, but still has one foot in adolescence. When he falls for a beautiful Japanese woman, he’s forced to decide where his priorities lie, as a series of comic catastrophes threatens to overwhelm him entirely.
