Truffaut vaulted to the front ranks upon his compassionate and bracing movie’s unveiling at the Cannes Film Festival, where he was named Best Director. Setting a new standard and pulse for autobiographical coming-of-age stories, he cast Jean-Pierre Léaud as Antoine Doinel, whose troubles at home and at school steer him towards delinquency.
