Breathless

À bout de souffle (PG)

Dir Jean-Luc Godard

Special 60th anniversary screenings. The epitome of cinematic cool which inspired a generation of filmmakers from Quentin Tarantino and Tony Scott to Lars Von Trier and Terence Malick, Breathless (À Bout De Souffle) features iconic performances from Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg as the central, most delightful and insolent couple in cinema history – young, effortlessly stylish, and in love in Paris. Based on a story by Francois Truffaut and photographed by New Wave legend Raoul Coutard, Jean-Luc Godard’s film debut is a jazzy riff on Film Noir. With its non-stop pace Breathless reinvented the grammar of movies and spearheaded the French New Wave of filmmaking. Selected in its new 4K restoration for Cannes Classics 2020, Bologna’s Il Cinema Ritrovato Festival and the Lumière Film Festival in Lyon.
