Proof that you can still be cool at 50.

First seen in 1960, Godard's debut feature feels as fresh as a warm baguette, and its insolent, intimate, off-the-cuff style is still copied everywhere in cinema. Jean-Paul Belmondo's lean, Bogartian hoodlum and Jean Seberg's tragic American waif are playfully and rather heartlessly drawn, but together they seem to glow off the screen.
