Breathless (1960) Cigarette Toss Supercut

A supercut of every time Michel tosses his cigarette in Breathless.

I watched Godard’s Breathless yesterday, and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. Something fascinates me about the way Michel lights and tosses his cigarettes in Jean-Luc Godard’s Breathless (À bout de souffle). It’s as if each cigarette tossed out of frame enters another dimension and never stops moving.

The song is “Poursuite” from the Breathless soundtrack by Martial Solal.

The typeface is Jean-Luc by Atelier Carvalho Bernau, http://carvalho-bernau.com.
