Breathless

Fully digitally re-mastered, Breathless (À bout de souffle) is still hailed as the epitome of the nouvelle vague. A fast-paced tale of a young man on the run in Paris, the film shook up the film world upon its release and has made a lasting impression on cinema history.

Cigarettes, hats, sunglasses and determined unconformity make Michel Poiccard (Jean-Paul Belmondo) a true cinematic icon. Playing against the stunning Jean Seberg he smokes his way through a series of sexy Gallic exchanges to a sharp jazz score in the coolest of cities.

Presented in a new 4k restoration.
