The Cinema Museum, London

LOCO screening of Bed and Board (Domicile Conjugal) (1970)

Fri 22 Apr 2016 @ 19:30 · Events

Domicile ConjugalAs part of a Liberté, Égalité, Hilarité celebration of French comedy, LOCO presents a rare chance to see the complete adventures of Antoine Doinel.

Between 1959 and 1979, director François Truffaut and actor Jean-Pierre Léaud collaborated on four feature films and one short that followed the life of Antoine Doinel from his stormy teens through marriage, children, divorce, and adulthood. By turns funny, furious, deeply moving, desperately romantic and always enchanting, it’s a story that mirrors the lives, loves, debates and dilemmas of its creators, and an essential element of the French New Wave.

Domicile ConjugalThe Cinema Museum is proud to host two of the screenings: a 35mm print of Stolen Kisses (1969) – tickets available here, and Bed and Board (1970).

Bed and Board (Domicile Conjugal) (1970)
Antoine is now married, with a baby on the way, but still has one foot in adolescence. When he falls for a beautiful Japanese woman, he’s forced to decide where his priorities lie, as a series of comic catastrophes threatens to overwhelm him entirely.
