French film director, screenwriter, critic and producer, who has also worked as an actor. He is most noted for his film, "Breathless," 1959, starred Jean-Paul Belmondo as a young hoodlum undone by his love for an American girl, played by Jean Seberg. This film is credited with influencing a generation of film makers. His films include "A Woman is a Woman," 1961, "A Married Woman," 1965 and "One Plus One," 1969. His body of work includes 100 television and feature films.

The son of a Red Cross doctor in Paris, Godard prefers living in Switzerland, though he is French to the core. A small, thin man with wiry hair and horn-rimmed glasses, he is a man without pretensions and one who loves his work. Living in an apartment in a small village, he takes his meals alone or with his longtime girlfriend, the director Anne-Marie Mieville, at the local hotel. A treasured icon in France, he became something of a relic in the '90s. His "Helas pour Moi" (Unfortunately for Me), was a complete flop in 1994. He finds film making exhausting as he is so totally immersed in his project that his critics say, "It's not cinema anymore, it's Godard. His films are part of him."
