BRIDGESTONE AWARD "Best in Ireland 2011, 2012 and 2013.
Nenagh Film Club presents “Breathless” in the Nenagh Arts Centre on Thursday 17th October from 8.00pm.
Breathless, a mainstay of the ‘French New Wave’ from 1960. It tells the offbeat love story between Michel Poiccard, a Humphrey Bogart wannabe and Patricia Franchini, an American who sells newspapers on the boulevards of Paris. Breathless was ground -breaking for its time, substituting dramatically staged scenes for documentary style reality, and presenting characters who were flawed and unsure of themselves. However, what Breathless lacks in polish it makes up in Gallic charm, and for a film shot in three weeks on a tiny budget, it’s legacy went on to influence some of the top directors of our time, including Quentin Tarantino and Francis Ford Coppola.
Date: Thursday 17 October
