"In The 400 Blows, Truffaut creates a cinema that “speaks of ordinary experiences and situations, fragile individuals, daily recognizable language and emotions where the director displays a non-superior relationship to his characters”. The original title stems from the French expression "Faire les quatre cents coups", meaning "to live a wild life", as the main character does.

SONG: SCHOOL - SUPERTRAMP - CRIME OF THE CENTURY "School" written and composed by Roger Hodgson, co-founder of Supertramp - http://www.RogerHodgson.com.
Davies wrote both the piano solo and a good deal of the lyrics. Interviewed by Jeff Parets of Acoustic Storm in 2010, Hodgson confirmed that the song was based on his experience at boarding school and said of the girl's scream: "Everything, especially that scream that you're talking about just before the band comes in, does represent a lot... I mean, you know, school is a wonderful place. Obviously, it's a school playground but that scream does represent a lot more."
I can see you in the morning when you go to school Don't forget your books, you know you've got to learn the golden rule, Teacher tells you stop your play and get on with your work And be like Johnnie-too-good, well don't you know he never shirks He's coming along After school is over you're playing in the park Don't be out too late, don't let it get too dark They tell you not to hang around and learn what life's about And grow up just like them, won't you let it work it out And you're full of doubt Don't do this and don't do that What are they trying to do? Make a good boy of you Do they know where it's at? Don't criticize, they're old and wise Do as they tell you to Don't want the devil to Come out and put your eyes Maybe I'm mistaken expecting you to fight Or maybe I'm just crazy, I don't know wrong from right But while I am still living, I've just got this to say It's always up to you if you want to be that Want to see that want to see that way You're coming along
