I'm glad you see the resemblance too. I thought I was going crazy!
Jean Pierre Leaud is best in Truffaut's films. He was plucked from obscurity when he starred in "The 400 blows" at the tender age of 15. You should see the other films he made with Truffaut like Stolen Kisses and Bed and Board. It's very silly but charming too.
Masculin Feminin is a Godard film, not the best one to see first if you're not use to his style (ps. it doesn't star Jane Birkin, but Francoise Hardy and Brigitte Bardot make cameo appearances )

Here's a sneak at some of his films

The 400 blows : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Cb9l...elated&search=

From the same film, Leaud literally improvised in this memorable scene: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HX808...elated&search=

Trailer of Stolen Kisses (the pic is a bit fuzzy): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xRTkj...elated&search=

Trailer for Bed and Board: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xHnZW...elated&search=

Brilliant look at Masculin, Feminin (love the song playing): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2ihlz_joKo

Alain Delon gets my vote for the hottest man ever.

But Anna Karina is my love.

Oh, I adore 'Les Mistons'! You're right Bernadette Lafont is stunning in the film. Did you know that the man she is in love with in the film was her real-life boyfriend? She wasn't even an actress.
One of the things I love about French New Wave movies is that they were filmed so casually over a short period of time using friends of the director.
And that energy and sheer joy of making the film really comes across.

I love the young girl in Breathless who stops Michel on the street with a petition and he says he hates the youth and she pulls a face.
I'm able to do screencaps and I couldn't resist capturing the brief seconds of this young girl in Breathless, that I mentioned earlier.

Her skirt had a wonderful swing as she tottered over the cobblestones...
These caps don't do justice to seeing her in motion and the sound of her voice

I love this thread. One of my favorite things about French New Wave is the fact that the actresses seemed to have this really intriguing air about them. They always outshone the men in the films. I just love the contrast between those women and the bland Mischa Bartons we have in American cinema today.

As promised, here are my screencaps of Godard's Masculin Feminin.
Since this is a French New Wave thread I thought I'd include images of scenery shot (since 60's Paris is wonderfully evoked in this film) and other characters from the film and some star-studded cameos! Enjoy everyone!

Chantal Goya plays Madeline, an aspiring pop star. A passive girl, who constantly checks herself in mirrors and touches her hair to reassure herself that her iconic bob is neat...


Raoul Coutard's cinematography enhances the scenes captured of Paris and it's inhabitants. Caught unaware sometimes in a faded grey, moody blots of noir or luminiscent overhead strips of lighting...



Francoise Hardy briefly appears getting out of an American embassy car and walking into a building


Jean-Pierre Leaud plays Paul, a disenchanted youth recently demobbed from the army who finds himself pulled towards communist leanings. At once intense and direct but also boyish, skidding across floors and jumping over benches to reach Madeline...
