vous etes vraiement degolasse

"À bout de souffle" (Breathless) is a French New Wave film directed by Jean-Luc Godard in 1960. This film absolutely captivated me, thanks to the lead role, Patricia (Jean Seberg).
She is absolutely adorable in this film, adding a quirky, innocent edge to Godard's film. In contrast to her co-star Michel (Jean-Paul Belmondo), Patricia is a light-hearted, take-no-shit, well-established young woman.
I'm in love with everything about her character, from her adorable short hair, winged eyeliner, striped cupcake dress and hide-behind-her-hands mannerism. She captured my itty-bitty heart.

This film makes me want to be in love in Paris in '60s.

Merci, Godard!
