Fifth and final instalment in the saga of Truffaut's narcissistic hero, Antoine Doinel, who hardly seems to have matured at all in this piece of whimsy. Encounter follows encounter in (ho hum) picaresque fashion, while Antoine remains bewildered at the vicissitudes of both women and life. There are welcome moments of irony and some sharply handled scenes, but they don't succeed in lifting the film above the most self-indulgent level of sentimentality.
