Claude Jade and Jean-Pierre Leaud in Bed and Board.

The adventures of plucky, adorable Antoine Doinel continue, and they are just as delightful as they were in Stolen Kisses.  Doinel (the continually amiable ) is now married to beautiful  and living in a Parisian apartment with her. When his flower-dyeing business goes bust, he must go looking for work and ends up with a well-paying job at an American shipping company. His relationship with his wife is threatened when he meets a Japanese client’s daughter and is so bewitched by her that he indulges in a lengthy affair. Light and airy, with delicious dialogue and an infectious classiness, this film should be watched immediately after the also precious Kisses.
