However, when we take a deeper look at the novel we realise that there is more to The Godfather than its author suggests. To start with, the reasons for its enduring popularity are not easy to pin down especially when one tries to evaluate whether it was the literary merit of the novel or the mass-appeal of the film (Barra 3).
As such, this essay will examine two films that, except for the purpose of this analysis, would be unlikely to ever be mentioned in the same sentence. As such, Jean-Luc Godard’s Breathless will be compared alongside Mel Gibson’s Braveheart. The purpose of such a seemingly disjunct analysis will be to determine the correspondence and/or divergence that is exhibited between what one might consider a big-budget Hollywood blockbuster and a lesser known, yet highly experimental, French “new wave” film.
