Breathless by Jean-Luc Godard( Visual )

There was before Breathless, and there was after Breathless. Jean-Luc Godard burst onto the film scene in 1960 with this jazzy, free-form, and sexy homage to the American film genres that inspired him as a writer for Cahiers du cinéma. With its lack of polish, surplus of attitude, anything-goes crime narrative, and effervescent young stars Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg, Breathless helped launch the French new wave and ensured that cinema would never be the same

Ausser Atem( Visual )

42 editions published between 1959 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gleich Godards erster Film wurde ein Klassiker. "Auer Atem" (1959) mit Jean-Paul Belmondo und Jean Seberg handelte von einem Kleingangster, der einen Polizisten erschiet und später von seiner Freundin an die Polizei verraten wird. Berühmt wurde Belmondos letzter Satz: "Du bist wirklich zum Kotzen", worauf sie in die Kamera blickt und treudoof fragt: "Kotzen? Was ist das?" "Auer Atem" war nicht nur ein Film, der das Lebensgefühl einer Generation spiegelte. Er verstie gegen jede Regel der damaligen Filmästhetik. Aus langen Gesprächen schnitt Godard einfach Sätze und Satzfetzen heraus, ohne sich um die dadurch entstehenden Bildsprünge (Jump-Cuts) zu scheren. Godard spielte diese Neuerung herunter, als er in seinem Buch "Einführung in eine wahre Geschichte des Kinos" behauptete, sein Film sei einfach zu lang gewesen und er habe auf die Art und Weise schludrig gekürzt. Inhaltlich orientiert sich "Auer Atem" an den Gangster- und Gaunerfilmen Hollywoods; er ist ausdrücklich den Monogram Pictures gewidmet, einer Firma, die in den 40er Jahren auf billig produzierte Reier spezialisiert war. Jean-Paul Belmondos berühmt gewordene Manierismen (mit dem Daumennagel über die Lippen streichen und so weiter) sind ein deutlicher Verweis auf ebenso manieristische Charaktere wie Bogarts Marlowe oder Sam Spade. Die klerikale deutsche Filmkritik konnte damals mit diesem Film nichts anfangen.
