Chapter four in Francois Truffaut's Antoine Doinel cycle (1970) finds Antoine (Jean-Pierre Leaud) married and his wife (Claude Jade) expecting a child. Still temperamentally unable to settle down, Antoine undermines his security by initiating an affair with a beautiful Japanese woman (Hiroko Berghauer). Told in Truffaut's elegantly episodic style, the film is entertaining and discreetly sentimental, though perhaps a little too flattering to the fantasies of the young adult audience (in the manner that Woody Allen would later make his own). 100 min.
