The making of Breathless and a fascinating collection
I completely agree with Filmjack3 comment : Chambre 12, Hotel De Suede, from Ventura & Villetard is really a pretty good film about the making of Godard's film Breathless. Moreover Chambre 12 is full of a very peculiar gracefulness, probably due to the fact that Ventura and Villetard chose to consider it with all the respect they both feel toward the so-called seventh art. So they wanted to make a real film of cinema, and not only a report about a shooting (Ventura is well known in France for producing a beautiful TV series called Cinema, cinema). And regarding the Criterion edition of Breathless it's merely superb. No need to add anything else to this accurate and subtle analysis. Except one detail : the one mentioned as really good at the interviews is Xavier Villetard, who wrote the 9 days diary, and that you can see all along the film.
