"A boy finds a few coins in an amusement park. A shy girl sneaks a glance at the even shyer boy she fancies. They're small events, but not for a child. 'A child invents life, ' says François Truffaut, who brilliantly captures the joys, yearnings, pain and wonder of childhood. ... The setting is Thiers, a town in southern France. ... Within that warmhearted community, Truffaut interweaves vignettes of puppy love, school days, bragging rights, trips to the movie house, loving parents--and one boy's escape from the nightmare of child abuse"--Videodisc sleeve

L'histoire d'Adèle H. The story of Adele H. by François Truffaut ( Visual )
38 editions published between 1975 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A laserdisc version of Truffaut's film about a woman who realises herself in self destruction, a story of unrequited love based on the actual journals written in code by the daughter of Victor Hugo who refers to herself only as Adele H. Beginning in 1863 Adele pursues an English lieutenant to Nova Scotia and Barbados. Truffaut's idea was to make a film with a maximum of inner violence about love involving only one person. The object of her love is worthless and Adele recognises him as such. Adele's obsession is with the emotion of love itself, l'amour fou which radically draws her to a refusal of identity on the outer limits of society. Truffaut called his film 'a musical composition for one instrument' and his single minded focus on Adjani as Adele carries us to 'a larger view of the notion of neurotically willed romanticism.' Kael recognises that The Story of Adele H. is, in a strange way, 'deeply, disharmoniously funny'
