Paris:  Film director Jean-Luc Godard, who had led the  revolutionary French New Wave of cinema, passed away on Tuesday, media reports said.

He was 91.

He rose in the 1960s as  a pioneer of the French New Wave of cinema.

He was arguably the most influential French filmmaker of the post-war era.

Godard’s first feature film, À bout de souffle (1960; ), which was produced by François Truffaut, his colleague on the journal Cahiers du cinéma, won the Jean Vigo Prize. It inaugurated a long series of features, all celebrated for the often drastic nonchalance of Godard’s improvisatory filmmaking procedures, read the Britannica website.

The movie assumed significance as Goddard used shaky handheld cameras and jump-cuts to take moviegoers to a different experience of watching the film.

Before making movies, he was a film critic.

He wrote for the iconic Cahiers du Cinéma during its heyday of the 1950s.

A marked cinematic innovator, his later popular works included Film Socialisme (2010) and Goodbye to Language (2014).

Apart from them, his notable works included  A Woman Is a Woman, My Life to Live, A Married Woman, among others.

Godard was married twice, to two of his leading women: Anna Karina (1961–1965) and Anne Wiazemsky (1967–1979).

French President Emmanuel Macron described him as a 'national treasure'.
