Competition: Breathless – DVD Competition

12 September 2010 12:17 PM, PDT | Pure Movies | See recent Pure Movies news »

This is a Pure Movies competition for Breathless, directed by Jean-Luc Godard, written by François Truffaut and starring Jean-Paul Belmondo, Jean Seberg, Daniel Boulanger, Jean-Pierre Melville, Henri-Jacques Huet, Van Doude and Claude Mansard. Based on a story by François Truffaut and photographed by New Wave legend Raoul Coutard, with no less a crime specialist than Claude Chabrol as technical advisor, Godard’s jazzy riff on American Film Noir features iconic performances from Belmondo, as the on-the-run Bogart-inspired small-time hood, and Seberg as his Herald Tribune-hawking American student girlfriend, who ultimately betrays him. With a pace that’s non-stop, Breathless reinvented the grammar of movies and almost instantly changed the course of international filmmaking. With Godard still going strong and about to release a new film: Socialisme, let’s celebrate where it all began, with Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg effortlessly stylish and in love in Paris, in the coolest film ever made. »
