Mondo Belmondo

There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

Jean-Luc Godard’s feature debut made Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg stars as they play the parts of beautiful doomed Parisian lovers. It’s hard to overstate the impact of BREATHLESS on cinema history. Dozens of filmmakers were unshackled by Godard’s loose, seemingly untethered style and the international cinema of youth in revolt was born. Historical import aside, BREATHLESS is a wonderful piece of screen entertainment, and Belmondo is a fascinating, unique movie presence.
