Style over substance,
This review is from: Breathless [DVD]  (DVD)
This 1959 moovie is quite boring at times. There is a long sequence of Belmondo and his American girlfriend talking inane banter in her apartment, all the while drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes.
Godard's 1959 directing debut was all about style over substance, and the story (to the extent that there was one) is almost incidental. Needless to say, that didn't stop Hollywood from doing a slick remake starring Richard Gere 24 years later. Time has not been good to this movie. It probably only deserves 4 stars. Worth a look.
