Godard’s French New Wave classic starring Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg returns to the big screen in a “breathtaking” new 4K restoration in honor of its 60th anniversary!

“It’s so damn cool. If you’ve never seen Breathless, see it now. If you haven’t seen it for ages, see it again and be surprised at the fresh reactions it provokes.” – Dave Calhoun, Time Out

There was before Breathless, and there was after Breathless. The young filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard burst onto the film scene in 1960 with this jazzy, free-form and dangerously sexy homage to the American B-movie genres that inspired him as a writer for Cahiers du Cinéma. With its lack of polish, surplus of attitude, anything-goes narrative involving two lovers on the run from the law, and effervescent young stars Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg, Breathless (À bout de soufflé) helped launch the French New Wave and ensured that cinema would never be the same. (Dir. by Jean Luc-Godard, 1960, France, in French with subtitles, 90 mins., Not Rated)
