A young, handsome Bogart wannabe rascal is on the run after killing a cop. He returns to Paris for his money and also tries to persuade his beloved American student to take flight with him. After all the indecision, she eventually betrays him. Before his “breathless” moment, he still longs for this unrequited love.
Breathless is Godard’s first feature film and was conceived by him as a break with the traditions of “quality” film-making and a return to the directness and immediacy of the American Ganster movie.
