1960
Jean-Luc Godard’s
groundbreaking auteur film À bout de souffle starring Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg.

The first script draft is written by FrançoisTruffaut. As the precusror of the Nouvelle Vague movement Godard breaks all rules of traditional cinematography: Natural light sources, handheld camera, asynchronous image / sound, Jump Cut and In-Camera Editing are among his techniques that Spielberg will also apply to his movies.

Godard will become one of the most outspoken critics of Spielberg’s work. He says about Schindler’s List (1993): “Spielberg used this man and this story and all the Jewish tragedy as if it were a big orchestra, to make a stereophonic sound from a simple story.”
