A small-time thief steals a car and impulsively shoots a motorcycle policeman. Wanted by the authorities, he reunites with an American expat student and attempts to persuade her to run away with him to Italy. Based on a script by François Truffaut.

“There are precious few titles in the history of cinema that can truly be called ‘revolutionary,’ and Godard’s Breathless is one of those few – it gave us a new way of making movies and a new way of thinking about them, a new rhythm of life, a new way of looking at ourselves. And, like all great pictures, it seems as fresh and startling today as it did 50 years ago.” -- Martin Scorsese
