A Retrospective of the films of Francois Truffaut
Bed and Board (Domicile conjugal) (1970, 100 mins.)
Love on the Run (L'amour en fuite) (1979, 94 mins.)
A double feature of the fourth and fifth installment in Truffaut's chronicle of the ardent, anachronistic Antoine Doinel (Jean-Pierre Leaud). Lightly comic, with a touch of the burlesque, Bed and Board is a bittersweet look at the travails of young married life and the fine line between adolescence and adulthood. In Love on the Run, we find Doinel, now in his thirties, convivially concluding his marriage, enjoying moderate success as a novelist, and clinging to his romantic fantasies. A pair of Truffaut gems.
