Ah thanks honey! I'm writing them all down and i'll hit up the video store!

It's funny but i've looked at images of Brigitte Bardot and Catherine Deneuve for years yet never seen a single film of theirs. Shameful!
Yves Montand i've only seen in Let's Make Love :)

Well tell Julien thank you very much! I have my eye on two of them. But I always credit the photog if it's a straight forward study, so his name will be in the title!


Kelly said...

P.S Is Le Sauvage the film that inspired THIS shoot??
Those stills look very similar and I know Abbey Lee is channelling Bardot.

Bijou and Ruby said...

Brilliant! Where was this a few months ago when I needed it. I think I'll have to buy a few of these on amazon though!



Belle said...

You are my absolute hero!!
Ages ago I was in Germany and saw this gorgeous print of 2 people walking on a street and I completely forgot what movie it was from, and you just put it up!! It was from À Bout De Souffle!
Merci beaucoup!!!

Beautiful stills.....

Julianna said...

Best post ever! My favorite Godard film would have to either be Une Femme Est Une Femme or Breathless.

Julianna said...

Oh and by the way..have you seen "Dreamers" yet? It's an older film so you might have, but if you haven't you need to check it out...there are a ton of Godard clips and references used in it!
