Out of breath, again waiting for Godard

UPSC Practice recommends Out of breath, again waiting for Godard.

A pivotal member of La Nouvelle Vague, or ‘New Wave’, cinema, which Francois Truffaut aptly described to be not a movement but ‘a quality’, Godard’s first feature film, the 1960 A Bout de Souffle (Out of Breath) – better known in the anglophonic world as Breathless – was itself a manifesto of this ‘quality’, with its jump cuts, elliptical narratives and organic dissolves.
