The 400 Blows

Francois Truffaut puts troubled youth onscreen in this popular French New Wave film. Drawn from his own upbringing, he explores all the familiar hazards: cold parents, crime, asshole teachers, and binding friendships. Contains the brilliant line from a boy accused of lying to his parents: "Sometimes I'd tell them the truth and they still wouldn't believe me."
