Before directing Breathless (1961), Jean-Luc Godard announced his presence to the world of cinema in bold reviews for the Paris-based film journal Cathiers du cinema. His first feature nevertheless caught audiences by surprise. Breathless remains a landmark of the French New Wave, the revolution in film production and cinematic treatment that captivated audiences in France and the United States in the late 1950s and early 1960s.
