Thursday Nights at the Cinematheque
A Retrospective of the films of Francois Truffaut

Stolen Kisses (Baisers voles)  (1968, 90 mins.) 

Antoine and Colette  (Antoine et Colette) (1962, 32 mins.) 

Jean-Pierre Leaud returns in Stolen Kisses, the third installment in the Antoine Doinel series. It is now 1968, and the mischievous and perpetually love-struck Doinel has been dishonorably discharged from the army and released onto the streets of Paris, where he embarks on a series of misadventures. Whimsical, nostalgic, and irrepressibly romantic, Stolen Kisses is Truffaut's timeless ode to the passion and impetuosity of youth. Together with Truffaut's Antoine Doinel short film, Antoine and Colette.
