First show: October 08
The film (along with Truffaut’s The 400 Blows) that gave rise to the French New Wave tsunami, making Jean-Paul Belmondo a star and morphing the face of an affectless American blonde gamine–Jean Seberg–into that of a heartless noir femme fatale. Belmondo imagines himself a Bogart or a Cagney, but is really a two-bit Parisian hood who falls hard for the little girl in a T-shirt peddling the New York Herald Tribune on the Champs-Élysées. The debut feature by former Cahiers du Cinéma critic Godard, Breathless moves, sounds, and looks like a love story–with cinema.
Directed by Jean-Luc Goddard, 1960. 90 min. Language, French with English subtitles. 35mm.
Part of The Ultimate Outsider: A tribute to Jean-Luc Godard. See either for $14 or get a pass to see all four for $44 at the box office.
