Francois Truffaut made this studious but engrossing “docudrama” account of the Wild Child of Aveyron — a young boy discovered in a French forest in 1798, seemingly untouched by society — at the height of the filmmaker’s newfound celebrity as a European auteur. With Truffaut himself as the doctor who volunteers to socialize the kid (non-actor Jean-Pierre Cargol), it functions both as a tribute to the early days of film and as a further investigation into the lives of unwanted children, one of the director’s persistent themes. Look for veteran film actor Jean Dasté (L’Atalante, La Grande Illusion) in a small role as a fellow professor (83 min.).
