Bed and Board (French: Domicile Conjugal) is a 1970 French film directed by François Truffaut. It is the fourth in Truffaut's series of five films about Antoine Doinel, and directly follows Stolen Kisses, showing the married life of Antoine (Jean-Pierre Léaud) and Christine (Claude Jade). The last in the series is Love on the Run.
The fourth installment in François Truffaut’s chronicle of the ardent, anachronistic Antoine Doinel, Bed and Board plunges his hapless creation once again into crisis. Expecting his first child and still struggling to find steady employment, Doinel (Jean-Pierre Léaud) involves himself in a relationship with a beautiful Japanese woman that threatens to destroy his marriage. Lightly comic, with a touch of the burlesque, Bed and Board is a bittersweet look at the travails of young married life and the fine line between adolescence and adulthood.
