Jean-Luc Godard – Heading to May ’68

95 mins

in French with EN subs

FRA/DEU | 1968 | dir. Jean-Luc Godard, with Juliet Berto, Jean-Pierre Léaud, Anne Wiazemsky

Although its title suggests a treatise by Friedrich Nietzsche, Le Gai Savoiris a modern version of Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s Emile. Emile Rousseau (Jean-Pierre Léaud) and Patricia Lumumba (Juliet Berto) seem to be making a film in a television studio, but are actually having a discourse on language. Filled with play with words, the philosophy reflects Godard’s most radical thoughts about communication and filmmaking.
