The director himself admits that it's an unsatisfying conclusion to the series, though a pretty good film in its own right.

As do some childhood friends, Antoine Doinel has grown away from us.

The results are more interesting than satisfying; it is a film more thought than felt.

This installment is as lightweight as the others and is still pleasing even though it has lost some of its freshness and spontaneity.

Audience Reviews for L'Amour en fuite (Love on the Run)


Being the last film about Antoine Doinel´s life and knowing that Truffaut didn´t like it, some choices are understandable, but it is the less interesting of the series. The flashbacks are enjoyable, specially if you saw all the fims; they bring kind a feeling of nostalgia and the happenings between them add a bit.

Not a huge fan of the flashbacks but did enjoy the nostalgic feel of watching Antoinel Doinel grow up, yet remain the same. Annie Hallian breaking of 4th Wall was hilarious!

I dislike when sitcoms do "clip shows" too.
