Trivia

Breathless (1960) was released around the same time as François Truffaut's The 400 Blows (1959) and Alain Resnais' Hiroshima Mon Amour (1959), thus establishing what came to be known as the French nouvelle vague (new wave).

Michel Poiccard: After all, I'm an asshole. After all, yes, I've got to. I've got to!
