Breathless (16-Mar-1960)

Original Title: └ bout de souffle

Director: Jean-Luc Godard

Writers: Jean-Luc Godard; Franšois Truffaut

Belmondo steals a car, kills a policeman, and as fugitive convinces an attractive young American woman to help the him reach Italy. But the plot of this film is incidental. It is about style and attitude. No film had ever been made like this, and it ranks among the most influential films ever made, being the definitive French New Wave cinematic work. Difficult to enjoy.

Contains no credits whatsoever. Primary actors listed.
