Antoine Doinel, the star of The 400 Blows, is back in civilian life after being discharged from the army. He needs a job and tries his hand at numerous things including private investigation. While on a case he meets Fabienne, an older, married woman, who he becomes infatuated with. But has he found a definitive love?
I first saw this about 30 years ago and it's every bit as charming as I remember. Slightly rambling and episodic (but, for me at least, in a good way), it beautifully captures the central character's rather dim-witted, romantic and passionate intensity (reminds me of my younger self, which is probably why I love it so much).
