Breathless

by

comment
In 1960, Europe was a cauldron of postwar creativity and social tumult. As a result, a bold era in cinema -- the French New Wave -- was born. The apex of that movement is Jean-Luc Godard's Breathless. Godard's quick edits and brash attitude hold together this fractured Parisian love story of an aloof, Bogart-loving car thief and his American girlfriend. Breathless screens at the Tivoli Theatre as part of the Mildred Lane Kemper Museum's series A Critical Eye: Avant-Garde Cinema of the 1960s.

7 p.m. Tue., Mar. 24. Landmark Tivoli Theatre (6350 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-995-6270 or kemperartmuseum.wustl.edu). Free admission.
