Love on the Run
In Brief: François Truffaut's sixth and final film of his Antoine Doinel series that began with Truffaut's first film, The 400 Blows, in 1959 is mostly a pure delight and a fine conclusion to the series. The only problem with Love on the Run (1979), which catches up with the 30-something Antoine for the first time since 1970's Bed & Board, is how comprehensible all the flashbacks to the earlier films will be to the uninitiated. Offhand, I'd say that only a basic familiarity with the concept is all that's needed. If you do get its wavelength, though, it's a charmer. This excerpt was taken from a review by Ken Hanke published on April 29, 2014.
