Godard delivers a typically dense, philosophical, and formally freewheeling meditation on the cinema, acting, and the paradoxical relationship between truth and deception in art. A war of words between director, producer and actress during the production of a cheap television film.
A Godard film with Jean-Pierre Léaud you didn’t know existed? Yes. Originally commissioned for French TV—and broadcast only once in 30 years—this is a playfully forlorn ode to the B-side of showbiz from its greatest saboteur. A new restoration has given this ’86 jewel the cinematic life it deserves.
