Thought Piece On The Movie 400 Blows

621 words - 3 pages

The struggle of Antoine throughout the movie is very explicit. He was just a plain victim of unfortunate lying like when he punished by his teacher because he was holding a sexy photo even though he does not own it. It was just too unfortunate of him that every time he lies, he was caught up. And when he tries to say the truth, no one believes him. I believe that there is always a risk in lying and that is being caught. Good for those who lie but was not caught. But there was one lucky mistake that Antoine did. It was when he left a candle lighted. He was reprimanded but suddenly it turned out that her mother defended him. And they decided to go into a movie house and stroll around the streets of France.
I admired the friendship of Rene because he offered something new, something that distract ...view middle of the document...

But they already stole it. Rene redeemed my respect when he tried to visit Antoine in the observatory center. I can sense that Antoine is even more excited to see Rene more than his mother. It broke my heart to see Antoine cried when Rene was not allowed to visit. As long as something or someone is about friendship, I feel so nostalgic. Because I do not even have a true friend like Rene.
His mother is also responsible on what happened on Antoine. He did not do her duty as mother truthfully. She always nags. She did not appreciate Antoine. The man was right when she said that her husband deserved a credit on taking care of Antoine even if it was not his. Because her husband was more caring towards Antoine. The mother only showed kindness towards Antoine when she is afraid that Antoine will tell her husband that she was cheating on him. And that is really not a valid kindness. It is also unreasonable that they will not get Antoine in the observation center just because of neighbors’ gossip. I do not know why mothers who do not think of his child welfare, like the mother of Antoine, exist.
Antoine did not deserve to be in an observatory center. The gravity of what Antoine is not as that serous like other teens did. Yes, he deserved some kind of punishment. But to be in the observatory center, no. I think it is an escape of responsibility for the mother who thinks that Antoine’s attitude is irreconcilable.
The movie leaves with one heck of questions. Why is Antoine so passive with all those struggles? Why did the movie end with Antoine escaping but ended in the sea? I think it represents that no matter how hard we try to escape in the struggles of life, one way or another, we will be cornered.
One more thing, I just noticed the footsteps on the shore from a different part where Antoine is running. It is a bit creepy.
