Beyond all the cinematic breakthroughs and importance of this film the main thing that struck me while watching was how cool it is. From Jean Paul Belmondo as Michel, in his shades, hat, tie and tweed jacket to Jean Seberg, as Patricia, with her short hair cut the film just breathes coolness and it's timeless.
Indeed groundbreaking, and while maybe not as impressive as it was when it debuted, it’s still none the less impressive in its own right, and a piece of snappy, pulpy, pure cinematic genius. The pace never lets up, leaving the viewer in a state in which its title alludes to, and uses inventive and just plain cool cinematic techniques and shots to convey its simple yet engrossing story.
It's said that different is good. That's what Godard style was all about and it was impressive because it focused more on the magnificient. While searching for means to embrace their sexuality they showed harsh ways of proving their passion one to each other. Like poetry it tried to stimulate us but overall we'll always be thinking about it's eroticism and addiction. "To become immortal... and then die."
