    • found: Wikipedia, June 5, 2019(Antoine Doinel is a fictional character created by French film director François Truffaut. Doinel is to a great extent an alter ego for Truffaut, sharing many of the same childhood experiences, looking somewhat alike and even being mistaken for one another on the street. Although Truffaut did not initially plan for Doinel to be a recurring character, he eventually returned to the character in one short-subject and three full-length films after introducing him in his debut feature, The 400 Blows (1959). In all, Truffaut followed the fictional life of Antoine Doinel (Jean-Pierre Léaud) for over 20 years, shows him in romance with Christine (Claude Jade) in Stolen Kisses, then the marriage of Antoine and Christine (Bed and Board) and the divorce of the couple Antoine and Christine in Love on the Run.)
