L'amour en fuite

François Truffaut France, 1979

Aaken's rating of the film Love on the Run

"The immense sadness of films without women. I hate war films except for that moment when the soldier takes out of his pocket the photo of a woman" Truffaut wasn't very keen on doing another film centered on Doinel, and the tone is bittersweet. Interestingly, after Doinel, Jean Pierre Léaud as a person was to become mythical movie persona will be used by other filmmakers - Tsai Ming Liang, for example.
