FRENCH REVOLUTIONARY: THE FILMS OF JEAN-LUC GODARD
Double Feature!
BREATHLESS / LE PETIT SOLDAT
BREATHLESS
À BOUT DE SOUFFLE
1960, Rialto Pictures, 90 min, France, Dir: Jean-Luc Godard

Lip-stroking pug Jean-Paul Belmondo is on the run, shooting cops and stealing cars - and cash from the handbag of Herald Tribune-hawking girlfriend Jean Seberg - with the couple engaging in boudoir philosophy, staring contests, sous-blanket tussles and plenty of smoking. The start of Godard’s decade of supreme hipness and seemingly compulsive, often outrageous innovation.

LE PETIT SOLDAT
THE LITTLE SOLDIER
1963, Rialto Pictures, 88 min, France, Dir: Jean-Luc Godard

For its unblinking look at torture in the Algerian War, director Jean-Luc Godard’s follow-up to BREATHLESS was banned by the French government for three years. A French intelligence agent (Michel Subor) is sent to assassinate a leader of the National Liberation Front of Algeria; on the way, he falls for a young woman (Anna Karina, in her feature debut), whose ties to the resistance prove her undoing. In French with English subtitles.
