"From 1959 till 1979 Truffaut followed Léaud's character Antoine Doinel, who falls in love with Christine Darbon (Claude Jade from Hitchcock's Topaz) in Stolen Kisses, marries her in Bed & Board and separates from her in the last Post-New-Wave-Movie Love on the Run. "

Antoine Doinel is a fictional character invented by French film director François Truffaut. Doinel is to a certain extent a stand-in, or alter ego, for Truffaut in a number of films.

Although Truffaut did not originally plan that Doinel would be a recurring character, Doinel appeared in three additional full-length films and one short-subject after his original appearance in Truffaut's debut feature, The 400 Blows. In all, Truffaut told stories of Doinel for 20 years.

Doinel was played by Jean-Pierre Léaud. His lover and later wife, Christine Darbon, was played by Claude Jade in the following adventures.
