The car thief Michel Poiccard kills a policeman on the RN7 road between Marseilles and Paris. He goes on to Paris, where someone owes him money and where he falls in love with Patricia Franchini, a young American woman who will study in Sorbonne. Michel finds her at Champs-Elysée, where she sells the New York Herald Tribune. She is not sure if she loves him or not, and yet she has an appointment with an American journalist who occasionally offered her a job as a reporter. When she returns to her hotel room in the evening, she finds Michel lying in her bed. The next morning, the policeman reports to Vital, when she was seen together with Michel Poiccard. The detective shows her a newspaper with a photo of Michel identifying him as a murderer. She has to admit that she met Michel, but says she has no idea where he is. Now she knows for sure that she loves Michel. She helps him to continue his flight.
Unique movie from 1960, a real hit in the cinemas in it's times. Breathless seems quite similar to other hollywood movies, you watch online from time to time, but it's really different, you'll be surprised. Compared to latest cinema movies, Breathless is like a diamond. With such good actors cast, the movie just can't be bad. Breathless was produced in France and directed by Jean-Luc Godard. If you liked the movie, share it on social media so your friends can see it too!
