BREATHLESS – 50th Anniversary Restoration
Starts Friday, July 9 at the Coolidge Corner Theatre


“As fresh and startling as it was 50 years ago!" - Martin Scorsese

"There's POTEMKIN, CITIZEN KANE, and this...Godard's first film." - J. Hoberman

Film-critic-turned-director Jean-Luc Godard told his tale of a car thief and cop killer (Jean-Paul Belmondo) trying to get back together with his American expatriate girlfriend (Jean Seberg) with a speed and looseness that made most Hollywood films of the era seem as though they were asleep at the wheel. With its dazzling hand-held camera work by Raoul Coutard, natural lighting, and revolutionary use of jump cuts (which Godard thought of on-the-fly to quicken the pace of each scene), BREATHLESS taught people to look at cinema in a whole new way, and has had a lasting influence on the filmmakers who followed.

For this 50th anniversary release of BREATHLESS, Rialto Pictures has struck new 35mm prints from a restored negative supervised by the film’s director of photography, Raoul Coutard. This is the first restoration in the film’s history. Rialto has also added completely revised English subtitles, capturing Godard’s playfulness like never before.

For screening times and advance tickets, visit www.coolidge.org. Tickets will also be available at the Coolidge Corner Theatre box office, 290 Harvard Street, Brookline.
