French New Wave maestro Jean-Luc Godard is known as one of cinema’s great innovators, an enigmatic iconoclast of tremendous intellect and political conviction. Less known is Godard the man, a human being as susceptible to the vagaries of romantic love, troubled ambition and commercial success as anyone.
Set in 1967, with Paris on the cusp of social upheaval, this new film from Oscar-winning director Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist) captures Godard at a turning point, with his marriage to actress and collaborator Anna Karina over and a new muse, student activist Anne Wiazemsky, entering his life.
Grounded in a stunning Cesar Award-nominated lead performance from Louis Garrel (The Dreamers), Godard Mon Amour is a riveting warts-and-all portrait of the artist as a young man seeking to stake his radical claim anew.
