About

"This film is a favorite of mine, and its subject - the story of a wild child discovered in a forest, then coaxed out and ‘civilized’ - is a favorite in many cultures. [...] But one might think of how Post-War French cinema was perceived by Truffaut and his fellow directors of the Nouvelle Vague - the New Wave - as being a kind of Wild Child, out of control and disordered, and of Truffaut, playing the patient teacher in this film, who in time masters the Wild Child of French cinema."
- James Ivory


THE WILD CHILD (L'enfant sauvage)
Directed by François Truffaut
With Jean-Pierre Cargol, François Truffaut
1970 | Drama | PG | 1h23 | France | The Film Desk

A scantily clothed and dirty young boy is admitted to the National Institute for the Deaf and Dumb in Paris. Having been found in the forest, the child is unable to speak, communicate or function in society. His case is taken up by Doctor Itard, a lone physician (played by Truffaut himself) who has unyielding dedication to re-integrating the lad into society. But the road to tame the beast is a rocky one…

Presented in partnership with the Columbia Maison Française
