". . . Not Only the Most Important of the New Wave Films but Also the Most Passionate." - Andrew Sarris, The Village Voice
One of the masterpieces of the French New Wave, Breathless launched the career of Jean=Luc Godard. This ground breaking film tells the story of Michel (Jean-Paul Belmondo), a handsome young criminal, who is on the run from the law after stealing a car and killing a policeman. He hides out in the Paris apartment of Patricia (Jean Seberg), a beautiful young American student. They spend their time dodging 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 and Patricia commits the ultimate act of betrayal.
