Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Breathless, we are pleased to present Jean-Luc Godard’s first feature film as our Christmas Special. Michel (Jean-Paul Belmondo) is a young criminal who models himself on Humphrey Bogart. While driving a stolen car, Michel shoots a policeman. Penniless and on the run from the police, he turns to his American girlfriend Patricia (Jean Seberg). She agrees to hide him and the two spend their time evading the police, making love and stealing cars to raise money for a trip to Italy. As the police net tightens, Michel's bravado and desperation grow. An iconic film heralding the French New Wave.
