While you're watching this classic, you don't think much of it. It really isn't very well made. The editing is jerky. Sometimes the continuity slips, the images look like they were shot at different times of the day. It looks pretty amateur.But the film eventually starts to win you over. It has its own way of telling the story, and you have to give in sooner or later. For me it came about 48 minutes into the film. After the long conversation between JPBelmondo and JSeberg. Godard obviously adores Seberg, and why wouldn't he? She's a lovely girl. Only in the movies would she go for a guy like Belmondo, or only in an old movie, rather.This film routinely makes top 50 lists, but it really isn't that good. It was influential, and opened up a whole new world of what could be shown in a motion picture. It still has a charm to it, but I wouldn't say it's better than Les Quatre cents coups or even Tirez sur le pianiste. Still, if I'd been alive when it came out, it would probably have a permanent spot in my heart. war
