    Description

    Breathless (UGC DA , 1960). French Petite (23.5" X 31.5"). There are very few films that define important cinematic events as well as this totally unexpected box office sensation from 1960. Anyone young enough to think that Quentin Tarantino or MTV invented the 'jump-cut', needs a viewing of this film to fully understand where an entire generation of young Hollywood film-makers learned their basic techniques. Godard's lst directorial effort ushered in an entire pantheon of 'against the grain' modes: broken eye-line matches, improvised dialogue, no unnecessary editing, and total location shooting. All elements of the Nouvelle Vauge (French New Wave). "Realism is the Essence of Cinema" Godard often said, and this film proves it. This original French Petite poster has only minor fold separations, and mild edge wear with a tiny tear in the top right. Very Fine/Near Mint.
