Special: Cinq Fois Godard

Nouvelle Vague

Jean-Luc Godard
FRA, CH 1990
89 min

NOUVELLE VAGUE is one of Godard’s most challenging and difficult films, which helps to explain its scarcity, but it’s also hard to think of many films in Godard’s career that look as beautiful. Filmed in lush Swiss locations that are very close to where Godard grew up, the film is in part a sustained reverie on what it means both to be rich and not to be rich, and the contrapunctal role played here by the wealthy characters and their servants is part of what makes this film so operatic in feeling. In keeping with Godard’s compulsive practice of quoting, every line of dialogue is purportedly traceable to a literary source, with Chandler and Faulkner among the many authors utilized. (Jonathan Rosenbaum)
