François Truffaut's very beautiful film with Truffaut it is still better
Has the end of the 18-th century, a Parisian doctor tries to educate a wild child, arrested in the forest where from he had never gone out. Being inspired by authentic facts, François Truffaut signs a fascinating work. Deeply moving.
