Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

What I find great in his films, is the feeling of freedom, of truth, that feeling you get along with the camera. The precise intuition he has of the truth of tiny details. Les quatre cents coups (1959), which I watch often, is full of details which give poetry to the movie.

Trivia:

He played the same part - Antoine Doinel- in five films: as young boy in Les quatre cents coups (1959), as an adolescent in the "Antoine et Colette" segment of the anthology L'amour à vingt ans (1962) and, together with the actress Claude Jade as his girlfriend, and later wife, Christine in Baisers volés (1968), Domicile conjugal (1970) and L'amour en fuite (1979).
