The 400 Blows 4K 1959 FRENCH Ultra HD 2160p
Twelve-year-old Antoine Doinel is a difficult teenager. His mother is busy with her personal life, and she has neither the time nor the desire to delve into her son's problems. The stepfather is a weak person, he has no influence either on his wife or on his son. The teacher only punishes the boy. Antoine and his friend are less likely to attend school, run away from home. None of this leads to anything good.

Review 4K Movie

Thirteen-year-old Antoine Doinel was labeled a "difficult child" by his teacher. The boy, already deprived of special qualities, loses that little interest in learning - he does not need it, he does not see the point in good grades. After all, the teacher considers him a bully (usual bad luck and equally common restlessness), and his parents (the most important, in general, people in this world) do not need him.

His father is adopted, and his mother sees only a problem in him and regrets that she did not have an abortion. She is desperately trying to make her own life and get out of poverty, and does not want to waste time and energy on a boy whom she already considers unsuccessful material. The unwillingness of adults to look deeper than Antoine’s petty misdeeds, to see the reason for his behavior, the unwillingness to at least accept the simple truth that they are to a greater extent to blame, lead the hero to the edge, to what would now be called “asocial behavior”.

Faire les quatre cents coups.
Antoine and his friend run away to big Paris, so far an innocent truant from school lessons. Rides (where you can see Truffaut himself), a cinema and other entertainment fill the day. In the film, they often go to the cinema (the second time Antoine will go with his family, and it will seem that everything is fine with them). Cinema is Truffaut's main passion; and his characters, just like him, are looking for, perhaps, salvation in the cinema. For this absenteeism, and for his lies about the death of his mother as an excuse, Antoine receives a scolding and decides to run away from home.

In cold winter Paris, he does not find what he was looking for - a new life - and, as a result, he ends up back in his parents' apartment. The mother is trying to find a common language with him, but a short period of family idyll is broken by the teacher, who fiercely criticizes the boy for plagiarism (and he apparently did not know such a word; he just wanted to show his admiration for Balzac, and, as it happened, completely copied his words in his essay). Antoine sees one way out - to run.

Run to the sea.
Mother and father finally put an end to the boy. And again before him is gloomy, cold Paris, and the same comrade with whom they go to crime. As a result, Antoine spends the night in a cell, having got there with the full consent of his father. His parents decide to send him to a shelter for the same "difficult" teenagers, convincing themselves that they did their best.

The boy ends up in a kind of juvenile prison. There he is visited by his mother and the same comrade. Psychologists are trying to understand the cause of his behavior and correct it. But he does not need any shelter, because this is another invention of the world in which he does not see himself. The only thing he wants is to see the sea. He runs again, runs with a specific goal - to turn his dream into reality. And here it is the beach ... and the sea. Frozen at the very edge of the water, Antoine sees an endless, incomprehensible, but also beautiful, wonderful world that is still waiting for him ahead.

Movie escape.
It's no secret that The 400 Blows is largely an autobiographical film for François Truffaut. And he took Jean-Pierre Leo for the main role, not only for his ability to look natural in the frame, but also for his outward resemblance to himself at the same age. He will not part with Leo and will shoot him in several more of his films. In general, the young actor coped surprisingly well with this role.

The camera, constantly following him, recorded everything, down to personal, and therefore complex, scenes. This is the story of Truffaut, the story of his flight from this world into the world of cinema. It was in the cinema that he found his vocation and, perhaps, salvation. Having worked as a critic for a long time, having shot a couple of short films, he gave the world a poignant and sad story of growing up. We've all been through this, but few would be able to talk about their journey after so many years.
