Breathless
Jean-Luc Godard, 1960
France | English and French with English subtitles | Format: 35mm | 90 minutes

How much more can possibly be said of this fresh, buoyant, surprising film about a small-time gangster on the run (Jean-Paul Belmondo) and his capricious American girlfriend (Jean Seberg)? The denatured post-synched sound…the vivacity of Raoul Coutard’s cinematography…the springy pace that seems to skip like a stone across the action…the beauty of Belmondo and Seberg in motion…the byway into an extended lovers’ dialogue…the energy of Breathless seems self-replenishing.
