Antoine and Antoinette (French: Antoine et Antoinette) is a 1947 French comedy film directed by Jacques Becker. It was entered into the 1947 Cannes Film Festival.[1]


Antoine and Antoinette are a working class family living and working in Paris. He is employed in a printing press and she in a department store. The couple are poor, but have many friends. However Antoine is jealous of the attention paid to the vivacious Antoinette by other men, despite the fact she is devoted to him. An apparent lottery win seems to have solved their financial problems, until Antoine loses the winning ticket on the Paris Metro.
