Reviews

François Truffaut’s autobiographical feature debut follows Antoine Doinel, an adolescent hell raiser driven to rebellion by his oppressive teachers and stormy home life. With its gritty cinematography, deeply personal sensibility, and iconic ending, The 400 Blows struck the cinema world like a lightning bolt, helping launch the French New Wave.

The February 22 screening will be shown in conjunction with the Cinema Classics Seminar, taught by Amy Corbin, Ph.D. On this date, seating for screening-only attendees will begin at 7:00 pm. Just want to see the film? Purchase your tickets from this page.
