Bed and Board (1970)

PG 01/21/1971 (US) ComedyDramaRomance 1h 37m

First Truffaut gave us "The 400 Blows." Then "Stolen Kisses"... and now "Bed and Board."


Parisian everyman Antoine Doinel has married his sweetheart Christine Darbon, and the newlyweds have set up a cozy domestic life of selling flowers and giving violin lessons while Antoine fitfully works on his long-gestating novel. As Christine becomes pregnant with the couple's first child, Antoine finds himself enraptured with a young Japanese beauty. The complications change the course of their relationship forever.
