Bed & Board (Domicile Conjugal) Reviews

March 26, 2009
It is laced with little incidents, quirky characters, incisive insights and quintessentially French national traits of complacency that avoid chauvinism in Truffaut's gentle but never sentimental or indulgent treatment.

For those who found Truffaut's later work becoming flaccid, this fourth instalment in the continuing saga of Antoine Doinel provides plenty of critical ammunition.

Bed and Board is one of the most decent and loving films I can remember.

I can't help believing that Franois Truffaut's latest Antoine Doinel comedy, Bed and Board, will turn out to be one of the loveliest, most intelligent movies we'll see in all of 1971.

The sadness of the film's decaying domesticity keeps undermining it, giving it the air of a melancholy B-side to what's come before.

The film is entertaining and discreetly sentimental, though perhaps a little too flattering to the fantasies of the young adult audience.
