Breathe Trailer

"I feel like I don't know you at all anymore." Film Movement has debuted an official US trailer for the film directed by Mélanie Laurent, Breathe, also known as Respire, a drama about two young friends. Starring Joséphine Japy and Lou de Laâge, this received rave reviews out of the Cannes Film Festival and looks to be very beautiful, very intimate, yet powerful coming-of-age drama. Laurent, best known as an actress from Now You See Me or Inglourious Basterds, is only directing here and seems to be doing an exceptional job. I'm very curious to see this when it hits US theaters this fall. See the trailer with English subtitles below.

Here's the official US trailer for Mélanie Laurent's Breathe, from Film Movement's YouTube:

Synopsis: Charlie (Joséphine Japy) is 17 years old. She at that age where life is all about hanging out with friends, emotions, convictions, passions. Sarah (Lou de Laâge) is the new girl in town. Beautiful, bold, with a history and a strong personality. A star from the get-go. Sarah chooses Charlie… The strange relationship between two young girls leads to a dangerous and deadly end. Breathe, originally titled Respire in French, is directed by Mélanie Laurent. The script is by Mélanie Laurent & Julien Lambroschini, adapted from Anne-Sophie Brasme's novel. This first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2014, and opened in European cinemas in late 2014. The film will finally be released in the US on September 11th.

It would be pretty cool and totally random if suddenly at the end of the movie, a nuclear bomb goes off and judgement day begins! Then you hear the classic Terminator soundtrack... what a surprising ending that would be....

I just saw 1988's Miracle Mile where it starts as a romcom and then exactly that happens (minus Terminator music) - what a coincidence! Also Laurent's movie looks pretty good

Teenagers are the worst. THE WORST.
