Grandeur et décadence d'un petit commerce de cinéma

The Rise and Fall of a Small Film Company
Jean-Luc Godard
FRA, CH 1986
92 min

Originally made for the French TV show «Série Noire», Grandeur et décadence d'un petit commerce de cinéma can be seen as Jean-Luc Godard's determined bid to demythologise the movie-making process to a higher plain. Ostensibly seeking to greenlight an adaptation of a James Hadley Chase novel, Jean-Pierre Léaud as a director and Jean Almereyda as a producer mull over the meaning and purpose of cinema. While eyeing beauteous new actresses with a dash of lasciviousness, the pair are also keeping track of would-be backers with more than a dash of cunning manipulation. «Truth is an arrow and the gate is narrow that is passes through.» (Bob Dylan, «When He Returns»)
