One of the most important French New Wave filmmakers, Godard’s tenth feature is an intricate and puzzling tale of a couple’s cross-country escape from the Organisation de l’Armée Secrète, a French paramilitary organization. In typical Godard fashion, this film features fourth wall breaks and shots that will make anyone pay attention to the characters more than the plot. Godard’s first film in color has a somewhat different feel than his previous black-and-white efforts, but is sure to keep viewers hooked if they have love for French New Wave cinema.
