Released in 1959, Francois Truffaut's first feature, The 400 Blows [Les Quatre cents coups], is also his most personal, based on his own stormy childhood. The 400 Blows unsentimentally portrays aloof parents, oppressive teachers, petty crime, and a friendship that would last a lifetime. The film marks Truffaut's passage from leading critic of the French New Wave to his emergence as one of Europe's most brilliant auteurs.
