Our take

An exuberant French New Wave classic, starring the unforgettable Jeanne Moreau in one of her most notorious, spellbinding performances. François Truffaut plays wildly with images—using freeze frames, jump cuts, and newsreels—to elevate cinema’s innovative potential in this paean to lost innocence.
