Truffaut’s alter ego Antoine Doinel further matures in this comedy about marital intimacy and infidelity, with he and Christine adrift in the matrimonial sloop, amid often stormy seas. Now a father, Antoine still can’t help falling for a lovely Japanese woman; his reunion with his family marks a real coming of age for the romantic boy we have grown so fond of. And for the first time, Antoine and Christine are part of and supported by a larger, delightfully idiosyncratic community. Bed & Board brims with delightful allusions to precious cinematic chapters in Antoine’s life.
