Saw Godard's BREATHLESS on computer last night. The film is about love between a crook and a failed artist. Perhaps the heroine never knew about his real self when she fell in love with the smart hero. And when she did, she had inevitably suffered the conflicts, but she was carrying his baby then. So she continued and even got to be his accomplice.

But oneday she got enough of it, and called in the cops. The cops shot him when he was on the run. "You're a scum-bag," says the dying hero to the heroine who came to look after him.

A wonderful love story told by a master film-maker. No noisy scene. Consummate dialogue. And how marvellous images!
