Collection of five films directed by François Truffaut and starring Jean-Pierre Léaud as Antoine Doinel. 'The 400 Blows' (1959) follows Antoine, an unruly young Parisian whose unhappiness leads him into trouble. Frequently running away from school and home, Antoine spends much of his time playing with his friends on the steets of the city. But events take a more serious turn when an accusation of plagiarism leads him to quit school and the theft of a typewriter lands him in trouble with the police. 'Antoine and Colette' (1962) follows Antoine as he experiences love for the first time when he meets and falls for Colette (Marie-France Pisier), a young girl from a privileged background. In 'Stolen Kisses' (1968), having received a dishonourable discharge from the army at the age of 20, Antoine works his way through a number of unsatisfactory jobs and transient relationships. In 'Bed and Board' (1970), Antoine experiences the early years of marriage, and faces fatherhood and adultery with a beautiful Japanese girl. Lastly, in 'Love On the Run' (1979), separated from his wife, Antoine, now a novelist, is having an affair with Sabine (Dorothée). When seeing off his son at a train station, he spots his first love, Colette (Pisier), and jumps into her carriage. Colette is now seeing Sabine's brother, Xavier (Daniel Mesguich), and soon all four protagonists are back in Paris attempting to reconcile their lives.

Collection of eight films directed by François Truffaut. In 'Shoot the Pianist' (1960), Charles Aznavour stars as a famous concert pianist who leaves his former life behind to play in a sleazy Parisian bar where he gradually becomes involved in the criminal activities of the big-city underworld. 'Jules et Jim' (1962) takes place over 20 years, both before and after World War I. Jeanne Moreau stars as Catherine, the beautiful and unpredictable woman who maintains a delicate relationship with two friends, the quiet German Jules (Oskar Werner) and the romantic Parisian Jim (Henri Serre). The war intervenes and drives the men to the opposing fronts; afterwards, the two quickly resume their friendship, but the balance of their relationship with Catherine is now upset by more adult concerns. In 'The Soft Skin' (1964), Jean Desailly stars as Pierre Lachenay, a successful middle-aged novelist and broadcaster who begins an affair with Nicole (Francoise Dorleac), a pretty young air hostess he meets on a flight to Lisbon while en route to deliver a lecture. Despite having little in common with Nicole, Pierre is enraptured and continues the affair on his return to France. But when his wife Franca (Nelly Benedetti) discovers his infidelity, she becomes consumed with a desire for revenge, and a tragic denouement unfolds. 'Anne and Muriel' (1971), set in nineteenth century Wales, follows Claude (Jean-Pierre Léaud), an aspiring young French writer, who spends a holiday on the Welsh coast with an English family and falls in love with the two daughters, Ann (Kika Markham) and Muriel (Stacey Tendeter). 'A Gorgeous Girl Like Me' (1972) follows Stanislas Prévine (André Dussollier), a sociologist, who, while researching a book, interviews murderess Camille (Bernadette Lafont), who tells him the story of her life. Put in a reform school as a child for suspected patricide, and later transferred to an orphanage, Camille escaped and tricked a young man called Clovis (Philippe Leotard) into marrying her. After attempting to kill Clovis' mother (Gilberte Geniat), she fled to Paris, where she began an affair with a night-club singer. Camille has left a trail of destruction and deceit in her wake, which now threatens to engulf Stanislas... In 'The Last Metro' (1980), the year is 1942, and Paris is occupied by German forces. Jewish theatre owner Lucas Steiner (Heinz Bennent) has handed over the control of his theatre to his actress wife Marion (Catherine Deneuve) while he hides out in the cellar. During rehearsals for the next production, the presence of a womanising actor (Gérard Depardieu) and a Nazi-sympathising journalist cause many difficulties for Marion. Eventually, she is forced to decide between her loyalty to her husband and her love for her countrymen, and acts out her solution in the production she has been rehearsing. In 'The Woman Next Door' (1981), the ghost of a tempestuous affair is reawakened when the two lovers, estranged for 10 years and now both newly married, coincidentally move next door to each other. In 'Finally Sunday' (1983), a company boss is accused of murdering his wife and her lover, and the evidence seems to support this. Whilst he is hiding from the police, his secretary takes on the role of detective and she uncovers illicit love affairs, prostitution rings and skeletons in everyone's closets before she uncovers the real culprit.

Contemporary concerns about food such as those stemming from mad cow disease, salmonella, and other potential food-related dangers are hardly new-humans have long been wary of what they eat. Beyond the fundamental fear of hunger, societies have sought to protect themselves from rotten, impure, or unhealthy food. From the markets of medieval Europe to the slaughterhouses of twentieth-century Chicago, Madeleine Ferri?res traces the origins of present-day behavior toward what we eat as she explores the panics, myths, and ever-shifting attitudes regarding food and its safety. She demonstrates that food fears have been inspired not only by safety concerns but also by cultural, political, and religious prejudices.

Flour from human bones and p?t? from dead cats are just two of the more unappetizing recipes that have scared consumers away from certain foods. Ferri?res considers the roots of these and other rumors, illuminating how societies have assessed and attempted to regulate the risks of eating. She documents the bizarre and commonsensical attempts by European towns to ensure the quality of beef and pork, ranging from tighter controls on butchers to prohibiting Jews and menstruating women from handling meat. Examining the spread of Hungarian cattle disease, which ravaged the livestock of seventeenth-century Europe, Ferri?res recounts the development of safety methods that became the Western model for fighting animal diseases.

Ferri?res discusses a wealth of crucial and curious food-related incidents, trends, and beliefs, including European explorers' shocked responses to the foodways of the New World; how some foods deemed unsafe for the rich were seen as perfectly suitable for the poor; the potato's negative reputation; the fierce legal battles between seventeenth-century French bread bakers and innkeepers; the role of the medical profession in food regulation; and how modern consumerism changed the way we eat. Drawing on history, folklore, agriculture, and anthropology, Ferri?res tells us how our decisions about what "not" to eat reflect who we are.
