Celebrating 50 years of cool, Jean-Luc Godard's BREATHLESS: 50TH Anniversary premiered at Berlin before receiving a digital re-release in UK cinemas June 25th. Based on a story by François Truffaut and photographed by New Wave legend Raoul Coutard, with no less a crime specialist than Claude Chabrol as technical advisor, Godard's jazzy riff on American Film Noir features iconic performances from Belmondo, as the on-the-run Bogart-inspired small-time hood, and Seberg as his Herald Tribune-hawking American student girlfriend, who ultimately betrays him. With a pace that's non-stop, BREATHLESS reinvented the grammar of movies and almost instantly changed the course of international filmmaking. With Godard still going strong and about to release a new film: Socialisme, let's celebrate where it all began, with Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg effortlessly stylish and in love in Paris, in the coolest film ever made.

• Rarely seen interview with Jean-Luc Godard by Mike Hodges from UK arts show Tempo (1965)
