Bed and Board (Truffaut, 1970): BFI Southbank, NFT2, 1.30pm

This film, also being screened on January 13th and 19th, is part of the Francois Truffaut season at BFI Soutubank. You can find the full details here.

Chicago Reader review:
Chapter four in Francois Truffaut’s Antoine Doinel cycle (1970) finds Antoine (Jean-Pierre Leaud) married and his wife (Claude Jade) expecting a child. Still temperamentally unable to settle down, Antoine undermines his security by initiating an affair with a beautiful Japanese woman (Hiroko Berghauer). Told in Truffaut’s elegantly episodic style, the film is entertaining and discreetly sentimental, though perhaps a little too flattering to the fantasies of the young adult audience (in the manner that Woody Allen would later make his own).
