60 years from its initial release we present a landmark in modern cinema.

A seminal French New Wave film by François Truffaut that offers an honest, sympathetic and wholly heart-breaking observation of adolescence, without trite nostalgia.

"One of the best movies about childhood ever made because it's really a movie for adults. Without sentiment, it looks at the fears, doubts, and anxieties of childhood."
