Classic cool french film with english subtitles, this was a ground-breaker of the French new wave on its release in 1960 and still stands up as a piece of cinema now. Jean-Paul Belmondo is compelling in the role of Michel, the petty criminal who shoots a policeman then goes to ground in Paris with is american girlfriend, played by Jean Seberg. The black and white imagery is perfect, the use of jump-cuts just keeps you on your toes and the end scenes are iconic. A must for film buffs!

A real game changing film that deserves five stars but let down by the physical packaging. A stupid rigid plastic disc that is far too tight, I'll be amazed if it doesn't damage the bluray. I also think that this release is slightly better than the Criterion one although Criterion's extras go on forever, have the best of both worlds and buy them both.

Jean-Luc's debut feature is truly a masterpiece in more ways than one. Considering this movie is now over 50 years old it is as relevant now as it was on its release. It almost creates it's own world in which it can be seen again and again without ever losing it's freshness and surprise. Be it the hand held camera techniques, the jazz infused soundtrack or simply Jean Seberg, this movie set the standard for the New Wave movement and has inspired generations of independent film makers since.

If you Love film then this is your first stop..........................

This is where modern cinema started. With a crew of five, including the director. This is the progenitor of everything from The Bourne set to Sofia Coppola. Joy.
