Penniless and on the run from the police, he turns to his American girlfriend Patricia, a student and aspiring journalist. Patricia agrees to hide him and the two spend their time evading the police, making love and stealing cars to raise money for a trip to Italy.

Comments

Godard's classic I must admit that the first half of the movie was pretty hard on me. I had trouble staying awake. Not that it wasn't good, but god some scenes were moving so slowly! The second half was more easy on me. Nonetheless, this is a great movie. The cinematography is fantastic. It makes you want to move to Paris! And what can I say about Belmondo? He's simply «à couper le souffle» in his role. Out of 100, I gave it 82.
