Godard, Jean Luc, -- -- A bout de souffle. Similar Items. The long conversations about nothing, the jumpy editing was funny for me, etc. I thought it as an excellent movie and understand its context, but I saw the whole thing as satire.
This film was not worth wasting time on, being merely a historical artifact for film theoreticians to foam over and immaculate. Strangelove, Bicycle Thieves, even Orphee. So, in that context, Godard looks like a pretender, the mumblecore maestro of his time… in other words, self indulgent, crappily done and largely pointless.
Godard focuses on the act of film, what is film, what are characters, the physicality of film. He may seem cold at times certainly not like Truffaut! Love the film noir feeling and the themes of the movie such as the ideas and perspective of American woman vs. French man or broken relationship. One of the the most important aspects of Breathless is that along with Blows and Le Beau Serge it incorporates the idea of the flaneur into film.
Characters will go on long walks talking, looking, and listening. Louis Malle also introduced Jeanne Moreau to the world in a similar fashion a few years earlier in Elevator to The Gallows. Griffith popularized montage. That is linking shots together to make a sequence instead of shooting an entire scene in one shot. In fact, his movies are the opposite of jump cuts as his movies attempt to make te editing invisible as has become the standard Hollywood style.
When I first saw it, I loved the movie in little pieces such as bits of dialogue but not as a whole, narrative structure. However, I just saw My Life to Live and I thought it was a masterpiece, mostly because although people praise the quick, spontaneous feel to Breathless, My Life to Live felt that it was more planned out and not like Godard was just making it up as he went along.

This includes the use of relatively new cameras a lightweight Eclair, easily handheld ; working with low budgets, which promoted location shooting and stories with contemporary settings; and the use of new personnel, including the star Belmondo and cameraman Raoul Coutard.
In addition Godard brought a set of attitudes to filmmaking shared by his fellow New Wave directors, derived from his experience as a film critic in the s. Among these was the belief that the director was the responsible creative individual behind a film, that film should be approached as a mode of personal expression, and a deep admiration for the visual style of many Hollywood films. Beyond its status as a "New Wave film," A bout de souffle begins to define attitudes and concerns which are more fully developed in Godard's subsequent work.
A broad range of cultural imagery is an integral part of the film's signifying material. In addition the strategy of narrative digression is important, incorporating lengthy scenes to explore issues which do not serve to develop the story per se.
In A bout de souffle Patricia's taking part in an interview with an author played by French director Jean-Pierre Melville functions in this way. Both of these practices testify to an interest in cinema as something more than a narrative medium in the conventional sense. As attention is directed to the ways in which filmic images and sounds create meaning, the very nature of cinematic signification becomes the central question for the director and his audience.

Tauris ), this is a listing of observations mostly too minor to find their way into a scholarly work, along with questions that I don't have answers to - all suggestions appreciated. The observations were made after a slow, stop-start viewing of the film, and with reference to.
