Jean Seberg appeared in 1960 as Patricia in Jean-Luc Godard's Breathless (French title: À bout de souffle), in which she co-starred with Jean-Paul Belmondo. The film became an international success and critics praised Seberg's performance, François Truffaut even hailing her the best actress in Europe. Despite her achievements in this genre, Seberg did not identify with her characters or the film plots, saying that she was making films in France about people [she's] not really interested in.
