Jean-Luc Godard and cameraman Claude Beausoleil filming A bout de souffle (Breathless) at Orly Airport, 1959. As the on-set photographer, Cauchetier was able to observe Godard's unorthodox filming methods.
Cauchetier discusses the filming of A bout de souffle (Breathless) in a recent interview :
Hidden behind his thick violet glasses, he (Godard) had decided to ignore the classical rules of cinema, but remained uncertain about the outcome. It was a trial. No one in the crew was very confident in the destiny of the film and some thought that it would never be finished. The producer grew angry when he noted that Godard, some days, had returned to the camera without turning a meter of film. He wanted to smash his face, and one day, they even had to be separated.
