A semi-autobiographical tale that is strikingly beautiful, both visually and emotionally. If I could define this film by any word, it would be freedom. This film is evidence that great storytelling is, at heart, visual.

An influential film by French master François Truffaut. This was the first Truffaut film I had seen, and it was a great experience. The story and characters come together perfectly. It's simple yet makes an impact.

Somehow, I don't like Francois Truffaut's movies about children as much. I wasn't wild about this one, but I'm glad I gave him another chance. I've liked the rest of his movies, except of course the ones about children: The Wild Child and Small Change.

The film is one of the most imporant technically speaking ever. It pionered in a lot of stuff, and somewhat influenced in the rest of the french new wave, and some american directors (very few). Besides that, the story is charming, touching, and timeless. Wonderful.

The best French movie I've seen. The photography is great and the acting by the young boy is key. It is like an adventure, but at the same time it is sad to see where he lives and how he is treated. Next time, it could be a 4 star movie.
