  • 1959

  • Directed by: Jean-Luc Godard
  • Cast: Jean-Paul Belmondo, Jean Seberg, Daniel Boulanger

A chic Parisian petty criminal (Belmondo) and his American girlfriend (Seberg) drift through a world of stolen cars and aimless romance towards an inexorable downbeat finale. Godard's debut feature provoked quite a stir in its day for its carefree arrogance with the conventions of filmic grammar, but today it stands as a casual love letter to the American B-movie crime picture.
