A small-time thief steals a car and impulsively murders a motorcycle policeman. Wanted by the authorities, he reunites with a hip American journalism student and attempts to persuade her to run away with him to Italy.
Jesse has to get out of Las Vegas quickly, and steals a car to drive to L.A. On the way he shoots a police man. When he makes it to L.A. he stays with Monica, a girl he has only known for a few days. As the film progresses, the police get closer to him, and the crimes escalate. Written by

At the start, when Jesse is driving the stolen Porsche to L.A, he is seen taking off his jacket. the next shot is a shot from behind, which shows him with his jacket still on. In the shot after that, he is seen continuing to take off his jacket. See more »
Picture 1992, a 12 year old girl reading British Vouge they talking about steaming love seances and they mentioned this movie. x-mas 1992. The play Breathless on BBC2. I watch it and this started by love of Richard Gere.
Richard plays a street punk Jesse, that shots a cop. Jesse flees to be with a Fench lady hes in love with. Jesse breaks into Monica's flat and showers the part of this movie he shows his penis.!!! Breathless shows the hardship a street punk, thats madly in love with a normal French lady that has goals in life. After they have sex, Monica turns away and she knows she messing with her good life for a street punk."Jesse I don't know what you want from me. I love you but I don't want to love you, you don't fit into my plans in my life". Monica is torn from her job and wasteing it with Jesse.
If you haven't seen Breathless I won't say more,even not likening Richard Gere. Watch Breathless this underrated movie. I do cry at the end evey bloody time. I am now 30, I would say I have seen Breathless 20 or 30 times.
