“This beautifully conceived and brilliantly acted film confirms Truffaut’s high place in the French humanist tradition.”—Gavin Millar on Stolen Kisses, Sight & Sound

The short film Antoine and Collette is the second in the Antoine Doinel series. Doinel is 17, lives in a hotel, and works in a factory making records as he’s obsessed with music. He falls in love with a woman he meets at a concert.  While she sees him as just a friend her parents love him. 1962, France, 4K DCP, in French with English subtitles, 32 minutes. Recommended for 15+.

Jean-Pierre Léaud returns in the delightful Stolen Kisses, the third installment in the Antoine Doinel series. It is now 1968, and the mischievous and perpetually love-struck Doinel has been dishonorably discharged from the army and released onto the streets of Paris, where he stumbles into the unlikely profession of private detective and embarks on a series of misadventures. Whimsical, nostalgic, and irrepressibly romantic, Stolen Kisses is Truffaut’s timeless ode to the passion and impetuosity of youth. 1968, France, 4K DCP, in French with English subtitles, 91 minutes. Recommended for 17+.
