Jean Seberg A Bout de souffle

Godard would give the lines to Belmondo and Seberg while having a few brief rehearsals on scenes involved, then filming them. No permission was received to shoot the film in its various locations (mainly the side streets and boulevards of Paris) either, adding to the spontaneous feel that Godard was aiming for. However, all locations were picked out before shooting began and assistant director Pierre Rissient has described the shoot as very organized.
