Godard’s breakthrough first feature, from a scenario by François Truffaut, is the Parisian love story between a small-time hood (Belmondo) and an American woman (Seberg). This masterpiece of the nouvelle vague is sometimes a love letter to classic Hollywood cinema and sometimes a challenge to it. A recently restored 4K DCP will be screened.
