Drama
Jean-Luc Godard's 1967 imagining of the twilight of the Western world, in which bourgeois society is stalled in an endless traffic jam, revolutionaries pass their time slaughtering pigs, and Mozart is played in open fields while the camera tracks in elegant circles. It's funny and grating, seductive and repulsive, by the usual Godardian turns: the paradoxes he loves to spin are emotional as well as intellectual. Though the film teeters on the brink of an icy Maoism, it never takes the plunge. With Mireille Darc, Jean Yanne, and Jean-Pierre Leaud. In French with subtitles.
Director: Jean-Luc Godard
Cast: Mireille Darc, Jean Yanne, Jean-Pierre Kalfon, Valerie Lagrange, Paul Gegauff, Virginie Vignon, Jean Eustache, Ernest Menzer and Jean-Pierre Léaud
