On the 6th of February is an anniversary for the world cinema, French cinema, and especially all the filmmakers in opposition to the established order. Indeed, it is the date of birth of François Truffaut, one of the great directors at the origin of the new wave.
On this occasion, we have decided to share with you The mistons, a short film directed by François Truffaut a few years before the success of his film The 400 blows. There are many themes which will then be in-depth throughout the career of the filmmaker : Childhood, difficulties for the couple… And of course, a setting very close to the claims of the new wave.
In Nîmes, kids persecute a couple of lovers.
