A penniless criminal Michel (Jean-Paul Belmondo) goes with an American girlfriend Patricia (Jean Seberg). She meets a guy who helps her with the articles. One of the best quotes from the film: Michel – “People are such liars.” The soundtrack and pace of the film were good. It’s editing and jump cuts were a bit rapid for this reviewers taste. Style of the picture was really elegant. Only reservation this critic had was the lack of a better plot since character development was focused. Breathless is a good French film worth viewing.

A film that connects the dots between passion, emotion, aesthetics, and effortless cool to create a New Wave gangster film that is stylish and modern-feeling. Seriously, has there been a cooler gangster film made? Each fram overflows with specific cinematic choices that combine to create a story that is full of vivacity and, like most New Wave films, celebrates life.

Perfect in it's imperfections, Godard's 'Breathless' is made with a passion so tactile that what would otherwise be considered post-modernist pretension is rather elevated to the status of introspective expression. The cinema's greatest directorial debut of all time!

Jean Seberg as Patricia Franchini was absolutely perfect. And the dashing Jean-Paul Belmondo. This film defines French New Wave, especially since all the collaborators on it were major parts of the New Wave. Well, this film rips off the ending to Marcel Carne's Quai des Brumes, but somehow got away with it. It's still one of the best movies ever made, even though Jean-Paul Belmondo's character really doesn't talk to women (Jean Seberg as Patricia) too nicely. The movie uses the word "dguelasse" at least three times, each time with an extraordinary amount of care.
