Plot Summary
Parisian everyman Antoine Doinel (Jean-Pierre Léaud) has married his sweetheart Christine Darbon (Claude Jade), and the newlyweds have set up a cozy domestic life of selling flowers and giving violin lessons while Antoine fitfully works on his long-gestating novel. As Christine becomes pregnant with the couple's first child, Antoine finds himself enraptured with a young Japanese beauty (Mademoiselle Hiroko). The complications change the course of their relationship forever.
