PORTRAIT

Jean-Luc Godard was one of the forerunners for the la Nouvelle Vogue movement that originated in French cinema during the 1950s. Inspired by André Bazin, Godard, together with names such as Francois Truffaut and Claude Chabrol, defined and developed groundbreaking theories and standards for the auteuristic approach to cinema, first as a critic and later as a filmmaker. Godard's personal, intimate style and great sense of visuals coupled with his often satirical and, in later years, surrealistic narrative laid the foundation for a handful of revolutionary films, even if he hasn't been able to maintain this level from the 70s and on.

 

WHAT DO THE CRITICS SAY?

Le week-end (1967)

"The writer-director Jean-Luc Godard has a gift for making the contemporary satiric and fantastic." 
 - Pauline Kael
