The 400 Blows (1959)


The picture that began Antoine Doinel's battle against a casually cruel world and introduced to said world the offhanded poetry and delicate, invigorating sensibility of François Truffaut. It's probably cinema's least pretentious portrayal of the struggle of The Outsider and one of the most enduring and intimately affecting tales of maturing into teendom.
