Fed up with his wife and Paris, Jean-Paul Belmondo heads for the south of France with old flame Anna Karina, a gangster’s moll. Based on Lionel White’s novel Obsession, but mostly improvised as Godard was inspired by locations en route to the South, this is one of the director’s very best films – a bewildering blend of genres and visual styles, shot in sun-splashed colour by Raoul Coutard.
