Re-release of the 1959 New Wave classic revolving around alienated 12-year-old Antoine Doinel, who feels unloved by his mother and stepfather and unduly terrorised by his teacher at school. So he bunks off lessons with a friend and seeks fulfilment in cinemas or at the fairground. Eventually, Antoine is expelled and the tyke must learn to survive on the streets, trapped in a vicious circle of crime and punishment that will carry him all the way to a juvenile detention centre.
