A truly incredible movie, appropriate for family viewing

Love this movie, it is the perfect movie for any child. Granted there is some bad behavior, so, make sure you have taught your child what right and what is wrong.

I'm sure it was striking for its time

After some research into this film to see why it's considered a classic, I realized it was a highly autobiographical film of the director, and that it didn't follow the mold of other French dramas at the time. The movie doesn't have that large a plot to be honest, it's really just the descent of young Antoine, who just can't seem to get his young life together. I wondered to myself when the movie was going to kick it into high gear and earn the 4 star rating it had on my DVR...but it never did it for me. As I suggest, it was probably revolutionary at the time for its themes of rebellion and its sometimes harsh cursing, especially for a 50s movie, but it's just a pretty good movie IMO.
