The residence was where Richard Gere steals the blue 1957 Thunderbird from is called the O'Neill house. It was built by O'Neill in 1978 and inspired by the work of Anton Gaudi. The house is located at 507 N Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. The scene is of the back alley behind the house. See more »

Although the UK cinema version was uncut, the 1986 video release suffered 24 seconds of detailed edits to the scenes where Richard Gere breaks into and hot-wires a car, plus his breaking into 'Valerie Kaprisky''s flat using the lock pick. The cuts were fully restored in 2001 and the certificate downgraded to a "15". See more »
Having watched the original, "A Bout de Soufflé", in my French film class, and then "Breathless" a week later, I was easily able to pick my favorite. While considered to be stylistically and aesthetically pivotal, Godard's film literally put me to sleep-- and I never fall asleep while watching new movies. McBride's "interpretation" was fantastic. Because it's about 20 years newer (and now 20 years old), I felt that I was able to jibe with it- its modernity was simpler for me to follow. The soundtrack was totally amazing- I believe there's some Heart and The Pretenders at some important scenes, which was definitely a selling point ;) I totally recommend "Breathless" and unlike my professor, I don't really think you have to watch "A Bout de Soufflé" first.
