BREATH­LESS

Pasatiempo - - Moving Images -

“Mod­ern movies be­gin here,” Roger Ebert has writ­ten, adding that “no de­but film since Cit­i­zen Kane ... has been as in­flu­en­tial.” The in­com­pa­ra­ble cool of Jean-Paul Bel­mondo, the vul­ner­a­ble tough­ness of Jean Se­berg, and the brash­ness of di­rec­tor Jean-Luc Go­dard helped launch the French New Wave. On its 50th birth­day, Breath­less re­mains fresh and ex­cit­ing, al­though its rev­o­lu­tion­ary ap­proach has long since been ab­sorbed into the main­stream, and the years do show on it a bit. Not rated. 90 min­utes. In French with sub­ti­tles. The Screen, Santa Fe. (Jonathan Richards) See Screen Gems, Page 84.
