It is 1967 and Jean-Luc Godard is a giant of international cinema as the leading figure of the French New Wave. His status will soon change though, as France begins a period of civil unrest that gets Godard caught up in radical politics which will forever mark a turning point in his career.

 

Based on Anne Wiazemsky’s memoir, Godard, Mon Amour takes place after their collaboration on La Chinoise, during the first years of their marriage. As his new, more political films are rejected by the public, he only becomes more stubborn in his new approach, leading to conflict with all around him and Anne’s own disillusionment with the master filmmaker.

 

Director Michel Hazanavicius has a knack for bringing us fun, loving tributes to cinema’s past. In his OSS series he brilliantly parodied the James Bond films of the 60s, he won an Oscar for his ode to silent cinema with The Artist, and now he brings us the best Godard film in decades, as he recreates the aesthetic texture of the French New Wave with a playful tone and sharp wit. It is a nostalgic walk down memory lane for fans of Godard’s work, and a perfect introduction to those who have not discovered the man who changed cinema forever.
