Love on the Run
Comedy, romance, by Francois Truffaut, France, 1978.
After seven years Antoine and Christine divorce, while remaining good friends. Antoine is in a relationship with Liliane, friend of Christine, has published an autobiography about his loves and finds work as a proofreader and also begins a cheerful, if tumultuous relationship, with Sabine, a saleswoman in a record store.
It is the fifth and final film in the series of 'Antoine Doinel', which follows the life of the main character from childhood to adulthood. The film won the Jury Prize at that year's Cannes Film Festival. It is a significant representation of human relationships, an intelligent and ironic reflection on the themes of love, loss and personal growth. It is also an homage to French cinema of the 60s and 70s, a sort of synthesis of cinematic themes and styles that Truffaut had explored throughout his career. Léaud had played the character in all the films of the "Antoine Doinel" series and his performance in "Love on the Run" was considered one of the best of his career. "Love on the Run" was well received by critics and is considered one of Truffaut's best films.
