Freebase

  1. Breathless

    Breathless is a 1960 French film directed by Jean-Luc Godard. It was his first feature-length work, and one of the earliest, most influential of the French New Wave. At the time, the film attracted much attention for its bold visual style and the innovative use of jump cuts. Breathless, together with François Truffaut's The 400 Blows and Alain Resnais's Hiroshima, Mon Amour, both released a year earlier, brought international acclaim to the French nouvelle vague. A fully restored version of the film was released in the U.S. for the 50th anniversary of the film in May 2010. When originally released in France, the film had 2,082,760 cinema goers.

  4. Mitch McConnell:

    With an exhaustive investigation complete, would the country finally unify to confront the real challenges before us ?
