A creative adolescent hellion of Paris is confused and ignored, both by parents and teachers, and descends into juvenile delinquency. After stealing a typewriter, he is sent to a youth prison. Remarkable performance by young Jean-Pierre Léaud in this landmark of French New Wave. Truffaut's directorial debut, and one of his best. Received Best Director award at the Cannes Film Festival, and an Oscar nomination for Best Writing.
