Breathless

For this 60th anniversary release of BREATHLESS, Rialto Pictures has made new 35 mm prints from a restored negative supervised by the film’s director of photography, Raoul Coutard – the first restoration in the film’s history. Rialto has also added completely revised English subtitles (by Lenny Borger, with 2010 revisions by Bruce Goldstein and Adrienne Halpern), capturing Godard’s playfulness like never before.

Written by François Truffaut and photographed by New Wave legend Raoul Coutard, with no less a crime specialist than Claude Chabrol as technical advisor, Godard’s jazzy riff on American Film Noir features iconic performances from Belmondo, as the on-the-run Bogart-inspired small-time hood, and Seberg as his American, Herald Tribune-hawking girlfriend. With a pace that’s nonstop, thanks to its startling new editing techniques, BREATHLESS reinvented the grammar of movies and almost instantly changed the course of international filmmaking.
