Godard's groundbreaking Breathless sees a dash of flair and subversive Gallic insouciance added to the language of American B-movies. Jean-Paul Belmondo plays the thief on the run, Jean Seberg his New York Herald Tribune-selling lover. An iconic example of the nouvelle vague, the film caused a filmic revolution, opening up many new, previously untried possibilities for cinema.
