I heard about Breathless (directed by Jean-Luc Godard, 1960) in 1999 or 2000. Back then I was a film and broadcasting student. It was not until 2008 that I finally watched the film in a cinema. The white-turned-yellow movie stub is pinned on my board.

I like the costumes of Patricia Franchini, played by Jean Seberg. Her outfits were so chic. Perhaps my liking for striped tops and dresses is influenced by this.
Note: Watch the movie at google video: A bout de souffle
