Bed & Board (1970)


If Godard is the French director to open your mind, Truffaut is the one to open your heart.

I haven't seen many of his films past The 400 Blows (and in fact, had planned to watch the second and third films in the Antoine Doinel saga, but we only had the fourth, and it stood up remarkably well as a stand-alone film.

Bright, sweet, whimsical, quirky, humorous, all adjectives that come to mind when watching Bed & Board...it struck me as very similar to Annie Hall (which happens to be one of my three favorite movies ever).

Francois Truffaut's cinematic alter-ego Antoine Doinel (played yet again by Jean-Pierre LĂ©aud) is now married to Christine (the staggeringly beautiful Claude Jade) and having a grand ol' time, working at a few of the silliest jobs you'll ever find in film (he dyes flowers, and later on, has a inexplicable job driving little model boats). They have a baby (and have a highly amusing argument about what to name him.)

He starts a completely unnecessary affair with a Japanese girl who is nowhere near as attractive as his wife (who even as a pregnant woman is as beautiful as Catherine Deneuve on her best day), but I'm sure it all works out in the end.9/10, #2 in my list of 1970

From the moment the first Mercedes-Benz CLS four-door "coupe" was introduced to the public, other German luxury automakers hit the drafting board. According to the German auto experts at AutoBild, Audi is just over a year away from unleashing its own cleverly packaged sedan.
