Classic spoiled by idiotic subtitle method - Breathless review by si

Spoiler Alert
04/06/2021

I was looking forward to watching this classic but the film was spoiled by the ridiculous method of subtitles where the translation is in small white letters usually on a white or light background so they are impossible to read especially with the rapid fire dialogue. Some studios have the good sense to include a black band at the bottom of the screen where the subtitles are easily readable .I gave up watching this Breathless movie after 30 minutes or so ..very disappointed !
