Naked Childhood Diretto da Maurice Pialat
[In The 400 Blows,] Truffaut’s widescreen camera maintains a loving distance from Antoine, giving him freedom to explore both the geographic and cinematic space. Pialat’s distance [in L’enfance nue], however, is more stoic, almost vacant; his background as a painter is evident in how he embraces stillness to convey the callow simplicity of his subject. Truffaut examines childhood, but Pialat lets it exist in all its contradictory sublimity.
