Stolen Kisses

Stolen Kisses is the third instalment of the ‘Antoine Doinel Series’, tracing the life of Truffaut’s filmic alter ego, Jean-Pierre Léaud. It is now 1968 and Antoine is 20. Having received a dishonourable discharge from the army he returns to the streets of Paris where he stumbles through a series of unsatisfying jobs and romantic encounters. Truffaut’s paean to the irrepressible ebullience of youth, Stolen Kisses is a playful, wistful and moving chapter in the life of one of cinema’s greatest fictional characters.
