The Wild Child

The Wild Child ★★★★★

Less discussed Truffaut film I saw when I was a little boy — it’s always stayed with me.

Kind hearted story about a lonely doctor in Paris and a parentless feral child who was found in the woods.

The doctor treats the boy and ends up raising him.

It’s not a long movie, short and simple and sincere. Leaves you with a uniquely, and quintessentially French, life-affirming vibe you’ll be thankful to have experienced.

Save for a rainy Sunday.
