    What an incredible and touching movie! Francois Truffaut at his best. The boy who played the wild child Victor was superb. Once you start watching, you cannot stop. Being shot in black and white made it very powerful indeed.

    I happened upon this film in the wee hours of the morning and I was taken with it immediately. The "wild child" actor, Jean-Pierre Cargol, is Oscar worthy in this role at 13 years of age and I was a bit taken aback that he hasn't succeeded in film based on this incredible performance. As Truffaut is wont to do, he explores many emotions in this film and, in particular, the ability of young people to fit into society as they grow older. Truffaut's love may be in directing but he is always a wonder-filled actor and this performance is no exception. It is filled with a soft nuance of science and love and I am extremely fond of Truffaut in this role. It is worth noting that this is a true story based on "wild child" found in France in the 18th century. If you have the opportunity to see this film, by all means do so. You will not be disappointed!
