Breathless

"Excellent"

Breathless Review


It's fun on the run in this film, which most say launched the French New Wave with its spontaneous, rollercoaster ride across France. Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg are boyfriend/girlfriend... and after he kills a policeman, it's obvious they're doomed. But how will it all come down? Jean-Luc Godard's panicked style here continues to inspire filmmakers today, and even if some of Breathless remains inaccessibly arty and obtuse, it's nonetheless a film of watershed importance.

Aka À bout de souffle.
