It has often been said that in the world of film, there was before Breathless, and there was after Breathless. Rarely has one film so changed the language of cinema — but that is exactly what critic-turned-director Jean-Luc Godard did with his 1960 debut film. Everything about this film was anti-Hollywood — he shot on location using only natural lighting, the actors improvised most of the dialog and he simply followed them to record the moment and the emotions. And filming permits, who needs them! What resulted was more like free-form jazz than than the typical structured, manicured film product from the major studios and audiences flocked to it.

This country-of-origin French 1-panel features the same amazing Clément Hurel design as the 1960 original, but it beautifully rendered in black & white.
