Paris, 1967. Jean-Luc Godard, the most distinguished French director of his time, is filming La Chinoise with the young actress Anne Wiazemsky in the lead role. Blissfully in love, they marry. However, following student riots and the film’s failure, Godard goes through a crisis that leaves him significantly changed – from stellar director to Maoist artist, an outsider working on the margins of the mainstream. Revolutionary, subversive, brilliant, he is steadfast in his choices, until he breaks. This new film from Oscar-winning director Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist), is a stylized homage to the greatest of French New Wave directors – a wild comedy, at once witty, intelligent, and touching.
