A seminal film of the French New Wave and first feature of the innovative Jean-Luc Godard,  this famous movie ‘rewrote the rules’ for film-makers everywhere.  Jean-Paul Belmondo is a petty crook who impulsively murders a policeman.  He hides in the flat of a girl he recently met (Jean Seberg), an American who has come to Paris to study. Modelling himself on Bogart and effortlessly stealing cars, he moves around the city trying to call in a loan.  His insouciance collides with her ambivalence.  In a sense the story matters less than the way it is told.  In Godard’s hands the standard American tough-guy crime movie becomes a vehicle for displaying dynamic new techniques, questioning moral norms, and commenting on the way movies create the myths we live by.  A short introduction will explain the film’s significance and draw attention to things to look for.
