Fully digitally re-mastered to celebrate its 50th anniversary, BREATHLESS (À Bout De Souffle) is still hailed as the epitome of cinematic cool. A fast paced tale of a young man on the run in Paris, the film shook up the film world upon its release and has made a lasting impression on cinema history. Cigarettes, hats, sunglasses and determined unconformity make Michel Poiccard (Jean-Paul Belmondo) a true cinematic icon. Playing against the stunning Jean Seberg he smokes his way through a series of sexy Gallic exchanges to a sharp Jazz score in the coolest of cities. The film debut of Jean-Luc Godard, BREATHLESS spearheaded The French New Wave of filmmaking, recognised as one of the most stylish and influential movements in cinema.
