ENCORE! © FRANCE 24 The kinetic, experimental style of films like “Breathless” and “Pierrot le Fou” saw Jean-Luc Godard crowned among the leading lights of the French New Wave. Following the Franco-Swiss filmmaker’s death at 91, Lisa Nesselson tells us how Godard’s formal innovations revolutionised European cinema, bringing Jean-Paul Belmondo, Jean Seberg, Anna Karina and even the streets of 1960s Paris to a global audience.
