The Wild Child

The Wild Child (1969)
L’ Enfant sauvage

One of director François Truffaut’s most unusual films is based on a true story and contains one of his rare acting appearances. In 1798 France, a feral child (Jean-Pierre Cargol) who’s grown up wild in the forest is discovered. Truffaut plays Dr. Jean Itard, the deaf specialist who tries to civilize the boy; the screenplay was adapted from Itard’s writings. Truffaut dedicated the film to Jean-Pierre Leaud, the star of his Antoine Doinel series.
