Godard has always been one for thinking of cinema in terms of the image itself, narrative itself, its history, its politics, his own place within it, and how any of those things can be denied, altered, and exaggerated. ADIEU AU LANGAGE again makes the climb toward this kind of inventiveness and controversy within the history of cinema.
The film itself acts like it knows how we’re trying to read it, playing one step ahead and admitting its own place as Godard from the future. Its ambitions come to an audio-visual presence through Godard’s formal process of 3D framing and visual trickery.
ADIEU AU LANGAGE is a ciné-poem, full of characters who hate being called characters and a narrative that is only barely strung along through a series of sensory-overload images and ear-bleeding screeches only to be followed by beautiful depth and faint whispers. (Zach Lewis)

The Viennale dedicates the Special Program CINQ FOIS GODARD to Jean-Luc Godard.
