Made at the cusp of the Nouvelle Vague, BOULEVARD is a coming-of-age story about a fatherless and rebellious adolescent named Jo-Jo that is set in a tenement building on Place Pigalle, an area characterized by poverty, sin and glitter. It features Jean-Pierre Léaud in his second lead role, immediately after his triumphant breakthrough in Truffaut's Les 400 coups. Life constantly throws a spanner in his works and people turn out to be anything but helpful. Jo-Jo had imagined his first steps into adulthood in Montmartre very differently. (re/fl)
