Synopsis

Dishonorably discharged from the army, 20-year-old Antoine Doinel finds it hard adapting to civilian life in Paris. While resuming his on-again, off-again relationship with Christine, he takes on a series of jobs, including a failed stint as a hotel clerk and a turn working as a private detective.

Our take

In Stolen Kisses, Jean-Pierre Léaud has now become Antoine Doinel as an adult (barely), and is running the streets of Paris as a detective. This mischievous and whimsical adventure shows François Truffaut at his most exquisite, playing with the detective thriller genre while running after romance.
