Customer Review

VINE VOICEon October 9, 2005
Many of the reviewers seem to see "Breathless" as being primarily of historical interest now , a groundbreaking film in its time introducing pioneering cinematic techniques. Thirty five years after its release and it still makes for absorbing viewing and has a sense of freshness about it that many modern films lack. The storyline is fairly slight; a petty crook (Belmondo) steals a car ,kills a policeman and goes on the run. He spends most of his time in Paris trying to win the love of his lukewarm American girlfriend (Seberg) and endeavouring to collect some money from an elusive Italian cohort. The strength of "Breathless" lies in its characterisation, Godard's stylish direction and the unorthodox romantic relationship between Belmondo and Seberg. There are also plenty of wry observations and philosophical musings from the bohemian couple to keep the viewers attention as the police close in on antihero Belmondo. Despite its age and it being shot in monochrome ,the picture and sound quality on this DVD is excellent and this contributes significantly to the overall enjoyment of a quality film.
