Stolen Kisses

The Fox/Lorber DVD release of Stolen Kisses doesn't give the viewer any real new extras, but the episodic structure of the movie fits the DVD chapter format perfectly. The movie follows the main character as he walks around with a bad case of unrequited love and humorously screws up a never-ending series of job opportunities. While Stolen Kisses continues Truffaut's semi-autobiographical Antoine Dionel series (following The 400 Blows and "Antoine et Collette," available on the Truffaut Shorts DVD), it is much lighter and comic in tone than the earlier, more realistic films. While Stolen Kisses deserves an in-depth, Criterion Collection-style DVD re-release, this Fox/Lorber edition at least gives viewers the movie's original widescreen aspect ratio and a new Dolby Digital 2.0 sound transfer. The DVD also features trailers for numerous Truffaut films and a tribute montage to star Jean-Pierre Leaud. As a historical side note, Truffaut really was jailed as an army deserter as a young man as the movie depicts; his mentor, film critic Andre Bazin, got him released. That Truffaut could turn such dark personal experiences into a humanistic comedy is very special indeed.
