"Bed and Board"
Directed by Francois Truffaut
The fourth film in
Truffaut's Antoine Doinel cycle, with Jean-Pierre Leaud reprising his role
as the director's cinematic alter-ego. Now married to his childhood
sweetheart, Christine (Claude Jade), Doinel still struggles with his own
immaturity, having an affair with a Japanese beauty just as he is about to
become a father for the first time. Light and comic, with a touch of the
bittersweet, this is a lovingly filmed and highly enjoyable chapter in the
series. Watch for an amusing appearance by "Monsieur Hulot" and other
delightful nods to Truffaut's influences. French with English subtitles.
