Breathless

89 mins

in French with EN subs

FRA | 1959 | dir. Jean-Luc Godard, with Jean-Paul Belmondo, Jean Seberg

A small-time thief steals a car and impulsively murders a motorcycle policeman. Wanted by the authorities, he reunites with a hip American journalism student and attempts to persuade her to run away with him to Italy. One of the most emblematic films of the New Wave, Godard’s Breathless has the same fresh,spontaneous feel as it did fifty-nine years ago.

Preceded by live music with French pianist Gauthier Toux who will reinterpret themes from Martial Solal’s film score
