'Stolen Kisses' is the third instalment of the Antoine Doinel Series, tracing the life of Truffaut's filmic alter ego, Jean-Pierre Léaud. It was nominated for the 1969 Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film.
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.
