SCREENING

Breathless (A bout de souffle)

Ongoing

Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Jean-Luc Godard. 1960, 90 mins. 35mm. With Jean-Paul Belmondo, Jean Seberg. Paying homage to hard-boiled American crime fiction and Humphrey Bogart, brash young genius Godard rewrote the rules of cinema with this exciting, romantic classic that defined the French New Wave. Small-time crook Michel (Belmondo) steals a car and murders a policeman. While on the run, he reconnects with Patricia (Seberg), a journalism student living in Paris, and tries to convince her to go on the lam with him. The 50th anniversary reissue by Rialto was a big hit for the company, and the magnificent 35mm prints made for the occasion are still circulating today.
