Antoine has married his sweetheart Christine, and the couple has set up a cozy life of selling flowers and giving violin lessons while Antoine works on his long-gestating novel. As Christine is pregnant with the couple’s first child, Antoine finds himself enraptured with a young Japanese beauty.
Antoine Doinel is once again up to all sorts of tricks and domestic misconduct in Bed and Board, revealing François Truffaut’s interest in depicting the hazards of marital life with zany humour yet honest realism. Jean-Pierre Léaud and Claude Jade are irresistible as an erratic couple.
