My personal favourites are Anne and Muriel, Les 400 Coups
and Mississippi Mermaid (though i last saw this many years ago). Shoot the Pianist, Jules et Jim, Stolen Kisses, The Wild Child, Day for Night, The Story of Adele H, The Man who Loved Women, The Green Room, Vivement Dimanche not far behind. Many fine films, but relatively few masterpieces, i think.
The Green Room
Vivement Dimanche

Well I would put Les Quatre Cents coups first without a doubt (my 3rd favourite film of all time) then

2. Day for Night <br>
3. Jules et Jim <br>
4. Stolen Kisses <br>
5. Shoot the piano player <br>

Oh this is annoying! I hate lists well, anyway Two English Girls, Wild Child, The Last Metro, The bride wore black aren't far behind. I still have to see many others including Small Change.

The 400 blows is one of the films I have seen in my life...maybe you could answer one question I have Bigpopa:

The last scene where Antoine Doinel runaway from the institution he is in to reach the sea and then while he reaches the sand and see the sea he suddenly looks at the camera with an empty expression on his face

I never knew what Truffaut or Doniel meant by that! any thoughts?

Perhaps it was deliberately ambiguous - one of the great things about cinema is that it is what you make of it. It is for you to decide what Truffaut/Doinel means.

thanks Gaz, you could be right....then what do you make of it? It left me a little bit empty, maybe after so much running away and trying to find a way out, when he finally did it was nothing there.

I don't mean empty as a bad film, the other way round, a very powerfull momment that is.
