i enjoyed this film but it didn't move me because i didn't feel any affinity towards the characters.

Beautifully disjointed editing. Such an interesting film to watch, original in many many aspects, but yes, a film for iconoclast filmmakers rather than storytellers.

I really have to force myself to watch Godard, and since Breathless is meant to be his masterpiece, I stuck with it. So. Hm. Yeah. I certainly respect the rule-breaking, but he here again leaves me cold. The attempt is at anti-Hollywood film noir - at no point do we think the anti-hero has a heart of gold or that the girl should end up with him, the plot as stated is never followed through, and the atmosphere is often the opposite of what's expected. In one sense, it's supposed to evoke realism. Life doesn't have a movie plot. And yet it still feels wholly artificial, especially in the pretentious dialog. At its best, Breathless does some cool stuff with rapid jump cuts, but a few of those experiments don't work at all. Belmondo as the leading man plays a such a grade-A asshole that you almost want to jump ship because of him. The extended conversations between him and his American girl have basically been lampooned by ze Little Rabbits, a French band, in their song "Ma femme américaine" (My American Wife), which I love better, but I guess it was worth watching Breathless just to make the connection. Sorry Godard fans, I just can't, I guess.

This film is amazing. It really reminds me of American film noir.

Although, I didn't quite get this movie, it was enjoyable.

Beginning of the French New Wave. Not much storytelling, but I did like it nonetheless.

Stylish movie with a lot of verve. I loved the frantic editing. Belmondo and Seberg are gorgeous. Otherwise I wasn't too sure what to make of it.

Loved it. Jean Paul Belmondo's performance is extremely good.

I enjoyed this. Great seeing late 1950s Paris and Jean Seberg is a fox.

@jerthejerjer: Are you kidding? Festivals love disjointed stories and trippy editing! Which film won the Palme d'Or last year again...?
