Godard Mon Amour/ Le Redoutable
By Michel Hazanavicius
2017 – France – 102 min
In French with English subtitles.
As part of the Film Series Revolution in the Air, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy are pleased to announce the screening of Godard Mon Amour (Le Redoutable) by Michel Hazanavicius.
Paris 1967. Jean-Luc Godard (Louis Garrel), the leading filmmaker of his generation, is shooting La Chinoise with the woman he loves, Anne Wiazemsky (Stacy Martin), 20 years his junior. They are happy, attractive, in love. They marry. But the film’s reception unleashes a profound self-examination in Jean-Luc. The events of May ’68 will amplify this process, and the crisis that shakes the filmmaker. Deep-rooted conflicts and misunderstandings will change him irrevocably. Revolutionary, off-the-wall, destructive, brilliant, he will pursue his choices and his beliefs to the breaking point… As he did with The Artist, Academy Award® winning director Michel Hazanavicius delivers another tribute to classic cinema, both wildly funny and deeply moving.
Online registration is required for this screening.
