France 1960 (re-released 2010), 87 mins. Dir. Jean-Luc Godard.
Starring Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg
One of the most influential examples of ‘nouvelle vague’ cinema, and bringing international attention to French styles of film-making, A Bout de Souffle is widely regarded by critics and the public alike as among the best films ever made. Jean-Paul Belmondo stars in his break-through role as Michel, a charming villain whose life of hitherto petty crime takes a more sinister turn when he kills a policeman while driving a stolen car. Penniless and with nowhere else to go, he hides out in the Paris apartment of a friend, an aspiring journalist, but when she learns that he is being investigated for murder, she begins to question her loyalties.
