I think this thread is just wonderful, because i so adore these old french movies. They have such a good sense of style and soul, that it takes me away somewhere...where i just imagine myself being out there. Somewhere lost in the 60's, drinkink wine and smoking one cigarette after anoter. And wearing a beret ofcourse. I love it.
I would love to see more pictures.

i don't want to sound like a whippersnapper but la dolce vita or blowup can't actually be considered as french new wave, can they?

some film stills from godard's weekend:

Thanks a lot for the thread!! Fantastic pics!
I've been lately quite obsessed about the look in those films, I cut my hair shorter (à la Anna Karina)

The last pic of Catherine Deneuve in that coat is gorgeous!!

I French New Wave. My username is in homage to fave actress Anna Karina. Her and Godard were a match made in Cinema Heaven!
And I don't think there was a sexier man than Jean Paul Belmondo in Breathless Although Jean Pierre Leaud comes a close second.....oh, and Alain Delon...oh merde, I love them all!

The usual actors and actresses have been featured in this thread, but I find myself captivated by people with literally just walk-on parts in these films. Wish I could find pics of them, but alas..I can't.

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.

And Marie Dubois (who appeared briefly in Jules et Jim) as the fabulous Therese. What energy she radiated for a few brief moments on screen!

Here are clips of wonderful Karina dancing in Godard films

This is from Bande a Part with the famous dance sequence in the cafe http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I6pOX...elated&search=

Here she is in Vivre Sa Vie dancing round the pool table http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LlBS3...elated&search=
