"It's a cornerstone of the French New Wave, and one of the greatest movies about childhood, from anywhere, ever."
★★★★★ Anthony Quinn, The Independent 

"Distinguished by its naturalistic, quasi-documentary approach and an extraordinary central performance from the 12-year-old Jean-Pierre Léaud, this is a blisteringly authentic story."
★★★★★ Wendy Ide, Times 

"What is there to say about The 400 Blows that hasn't already been said?"
★★★★★ Sukhdev Sandhu, Daily Telegraph 

For young Parisian boy Antoine Doinel (Jean-Pierre Léaud), life is one difficult situation after another. Surrounded by inconsiderate adults, including his neglectful parents (Claire Maurier, Albert Remy), Antoine spends his days with his best friend, Rene (Patrick Auffray), trying to plan for a better life. When one of their schemes goes awry, Antoine ends up in trouble with the law, leading to even more conflicts with unsympathetic authority figures.
