Breathless DVD - The movie that heralded the French New Wave movement, this lean and exciting 1959 film directed by Jean-Luc Godard broke new ground not only in its unorthodox use of editing and hand-held photography, but in its unflinching and nonjudgmental portrayal of Michel is a young thug who romantically models himself on Humphrey Bogart. While driving a stolen car, Michel shoots a policeman who follows him onto a country road. Penniless and on the run from the police, he turns to his American girlfriend Patricia, a student and aspiring journalist. Patricia agrees to hide him and the two spend their time evading the police, making love and stealing cars to raise money for a trip to Italy. As the police net tightens, Michel's bravado and desperation grow... Stars Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg. French audio and English subtitles. 87 minutes, unrated.
