French cinema doesn't get any cooler than this. A petty thief who models himself on Humphrey Bogart hides out in Paris after killing a cop. Needing to lie low, he persuades his American girlfriend to let him stay with her while he tries to find enough money to go on the run. Shot in black and white in a grainy documentary style, A Bout de Souffle - also known as Breathless - is the cornerstone of the French "New Wave" - a masterpiece that has inspired countless filmmakers since.
PLEASE BE AWARE: After ordering Breathless (1959 original), the disc you will receive may be marked as being a 15 certificate - however, this relates to the extra features on the DVD and not the film itself, which is certified with the BBFC as a PG. Into Film has consulted the BBFC, and their guidance is that as long as a club leader screens only the film (and not additional features or audio commentaries etc), Breathless (1959 original) can be treated as a PG certificate in a school setting.
Bob the Gambler is an old gangster trying to go straight, before he can he must pull off one last job - to rob a casino.
