À bout de souffle (Breathless). 1960. France. Directed by Jean-Luc Godard. 95 min.
Screenplay by Godard, based on an original treatment by François Truffaut. With Jean-Paul Belmondo, Jean Seberg. Iconic, stylish, and often cited as inaugurating the French New Wave, Breathless is also a distinctively modern romance: three parts ambivalence, one part love. Courtesy New Yorker Films.
