The first time I saw this movie was in my first month of living in New York. I'm pretty sure that I saw this as part of a double feature with Bed and Board at Symphony Space. I loved them both. This movie reminds me of how excited I was when I had first moved to NYC.
This is the third part of the Antoine Doinel series with The 400 Blows being the first. This one is about Doinel in his early 20's. After a series of failed jobs, he ends up working at a detective agency. He is put in charge of the case of why everyone dislikes the owner of a shoe store. The client is the owner himself who can't figure out why no one likes him.
This film is super lightweight but it works. Leaud always puts me in a good mood and the 90 minutes breezes by. This movie is whimsical in the best way.
Not to mention Jean-Pierre Leaud couldn't be more of doppelganger for Bart in this movie.
