The Mischief Makers

The Mischief Makers ★★★★

François Truffaut Ranked

There's an absolutely inspiring sense of vitality in this that I'm practically unable to put into words. The simple concept of a group of prepubescent boys and their rascal ways of expressing their feelings for a beautiful young woman is delivered with so much energy while never becoming overbearing. The 18 minute-long short flies by like a rocket and still has so much "openness" to it, so much space for the viewer to just dive in and get completely enveloped by the simple but strong emotions Truffaut lays out in front of us. It's plain but effective and shows the kind of kinetic energy I'd long to see in every movie.
