Francois Truffaut’s semi-autobiographical first feature stars Jean-Pierre Léaud as Antoine Doinel, an unruly young Parisian whose unhappiness leads him into trouble. Frequently running away from school and home, Antoine spends much of his time playing with his friends on the streets of the city; but events take a more serious turn when the theft of a typewriter lands him in trouble with the police.
