François Truffaut directs Jean-Pierre Léaud, Delphine Seyrig and Claude Jade in this comedy where Antoine Doinel is discharged from the army and becomes a detective.
A shift towards bright sight gags and gentle silliness. Léaud comes into his own here as physical performer, finding gangly laughs as a rubbish night clerk and an undercover shoe salesman. Delphine Seyrig is the highlight as a predatory boss’ wife who Léaud just can’t resist. Sweet if a little too whimsical.
