Country: France

Genre: Drama

IMDb

Synopsis

Set in the 18th century and based on the diaries of real-life French doctor Jean Itard. Itard fought authorities for the right to take charge of a "wild child"--a young boy who somehow had managed to survive, alone and uncared for, in nature. Although most of the medical establishment felt that the child, who could not speak and often exhibited violent behavior, was hopelessly retarded, Itard managed to prove them wrong.

A rather bland and sterile take on an interesting story.

Good and interesting movie drawing from Itard's records. Truffaut's own acting is a little wooden.
