Breathless

A film by Jean-Luc Godard
Starring Jean-Paul Belmondo, Jean Seberg

New 35mm Print! 50th Anniversary Restoration!

There was before BREATHLESS, and there was after BREATHLESS. With its lack of polish, surplus of attitude, crackling personalities of rising stars Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg, and anything-goes crime narrative, Jean-Luc Godard’s debut fashioned a simultaneous homage to and critique of the American film genres that influenced and rocked him as a film writer for Cahiers du cinéma. Jazzy, free-form, and sexy, BREATHLESS (”À bout de souffle”) helped launch the French New Wave and ensured cinema would never be the same.
