Thought by many to be the fictional alter ego of Francois Truffaut, Antoine Doinel, played in all movies by Jean-Pierre Leaud, was a fictional character created by Truffaut that depicted many of his own memories ranging from childhood through divorce.
The Adventures of Antoine Doinel is an enchanting look at the character of Antoine through screenplays and stills from four of Truffaut’s most well-known films: The 400 Blows, Love at Twenty, Stolen Kisses, and Bed and Board.
