Jean-Luc Godard

JEAN-LUC GODARD (*1930) is seen as the most important representative of the French Nouvelle Vague and has left his mark on the language of cinema. In 2010, he was given an Oscar for his life's work.

In his latest work, legendary director Jean-Luc Godard contemplates the status quo in the world. A stream of thoughts like a rush. An associative collage in five chapters. Pictures and words. Like a fever-dream written on a stormy night. Gruesome and violent. The longing for freedom. The depths of humanity. The beauty of the cinema. Paradise lost. Time and history, stretched and condensed. An sinister picture book. The war has begun.
