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 »
A Bout De Soufflé is closely related to the portrait of a generation shaped by Beatnik and Existencialist philosophies. Kerouak and Salinger in USA, Sartres and Camus in France, were among the intellectuals who inspired this generation.
A generation whose "malaise" is embedded in Paris atmosphere. Paris which was the very center of occidental culture by that time.
The American version of this story, Breathless, directed by Jim McBride, missed the point because the portrait of a generation of the sixties in Paris, cannot be transplanted to a context of the eighties in California.
