A Retrospective of the films of Francois Truffaut
The Wild Child (L'enfant sauvage) (1970, 83 mins.)
Small Change (L'argent de poche) (1976, 104 mins.)
Two of Truffaut's most compelling films dealt specifically with the lives of children. In an austere documentary style, 1970's The Wild Child tells the true story of a young feral boy found in 18th century France. In another documentary-style film, 1976's Small Change chronicles the lives of several young children at play in a French provincial town. Both films reflect Truffaut's own troubled youth but also show his deep love for children and his lifelong interest in the subject of childhood.
