After young Antoine (Jean-Pierre Léaud) runs away, life on the streets of Paris leads to nothing but trouble and guilt in this gritty feature film debut from legendary director François Truffaut. Though he turns to petty crime to survive, Antoine’s remorse often leads him to try to return things he’s stolen—with disastrous results. The film was nominated for a Best Screenplay Oscar and the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival.

Antoine and Colette is the director’s follow-up to The 400 Blows. This beautifully-photographed black-and-white short film deftly depicts the giddy highs and devastating lows of first love found and lost, as experienced by Truffaut’s cinematic alter ego, Antoine.
