Truffaut’s SMALL CHANGE Now Playing at IFC Center

The Film Desk brings us another lost classic with Truffaut’s Small Change, opening today for a week at the IFC Center in New York City.  Don’t miss your chance to see it on the big screen.

New 35mm print! Too long absent from the big screen, SMALL CHANGE is one of Truffaut’s most poetic and personal films, a radiant celebration of the world of childhood. Through a series of loosely connected vignettes in a small city in southern France, a group of children, from infants to adolescents, experience the joys and trials of being young. “Children exist in a state of grace,” as a young mother observes. “They pass untouched through dangers that would destroy an adult.

“The best film of 1976! Magical… Truffaut at his best.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
