Breathless:
One of the masterpieces of the French New Wave, Breathless launched the career of Jean-Luc Godard.This groundbreaking film tells the story of Michael (Jean-Paul Belmondo), a handsome young criminal, who is on the run from the law after stealing a car and killing a policeman.He hides out in the Paris apartment of Patricia (Jean Seberg), a beautiful young American student.They spend their time dodging the police, making love and stealing cars to raise money for a trip to Italy.As the police net tightens, Michael's bravado and desperation grow and Patricia commits the ultimate act of betrayal.

Le Petit Soldat:
Set during the Algerian War, Le Petit Soldat follows Bruno Forestier, a disillusioned young deserter who becomes involved in the French nationalist movement.He is ordered to kill an Algerian sympathizer, and although does not hold deep political beliefs, commits the murder and undergoes torture when captured.At the same time, he meets and falls in love with a woman (Anna Karina in her film debut) who he does not know is fighting for the other side.Godard's controversial follow-up to Breathless was originally banned from release in France because it refers to the use of torture on both sides, during Algeria's struggle for independence.

Les Carabiniers:
Godard's powerful anti-war and anti-imperialist film, Les Carabiniers, centers on two peasants who join the King's army.Seduced by the promise of riches, the two leave their wives and embark into the war sending postcards home that detail their conquests.Upon their return, they learn that a peace treaty has been signed and in turn, are betrayed by the king for their over zealousness.
