Overview
Internationally acclaimed director François Truffaut weaves his love of kids and cinema seamlessly together in this tribute to the joys, yearnings, pains and wonders of childhood. A "kaleidoscopic rhapsody" (Newsweek) in Truffaut's classic humanist style, Small Change is "lyrically funny" (The New York Times) and "thoroughly charming" (Leonard Maltin).

In the quaint French town of Thiers, the streets abound with the sound of children laughing and playing. While most of them deal with such simple issues as puppy love and attending school for the first time, some don't find life quite so easy. The hungry ones play upon the heartstrings of neighbors for supper, and the lonely ones cause trouble for attention. But when the truth behind one little boy's petty thievery is revealed, a shockwave is sent through this picturesque town that helps everyone finally see the children for who they truly are.
