Breathless

Dir. Jean-Luc Godard France 90 min Not Rated

1960 Rialto Pictures

French with English subtitles

Small-time crook Michel (Jean-Paul Belmondo) steals a car and murders a policeman. While on the run, he reconnects with Patricia (Jean Seberg), a journalism student living in Paris, and tries to convince her to go on the lam with him.

“It’s not hyperbole to say that Godard’s New Wave touchstone, still one of the most electrifying debuts in history, changed cinema forever.”
–New York magazine
“A thrilling reminder of how playful Godard could be… With its jazzy, staccato rhythms and endless referencing of other films and filmmakers, BREATHLESS makes alienation look like it was a lot more fun in 1960 than in the ponderous gravitas or ante-upping brutality of indie film today.” –Ella Taylor, The Village Voice
