Le Mépris + Discussion

Contempt

103 mins

in French with English subtitles

France / Italy | 1963 | col | dir. Jean-Luc Godard, with Brigitte Bardot, Michel Piccoli, Jack Palance, Fritz Lang | new print

Unusually cast and playfully shot, Godard’s masterly hymn to cinema features Michel Piccoli and Brigitte Bardot as a couple whose marriage begins to fall apart while they are both on the island of Capri during the shooting of a film directed by Fritz Lang. As Camille, Bardot splendidly chips the male clichés over women in this legendary part.

Join Nick Walker from Rochester Kino Cinema Club for a post screening discussion in the Café Aubaine.
