Vladimir et Rosa depicts a trial resembling that of the «Chicago Eight», in the U.S. in the 1960s, and also shows something of the everyday lives of several of the defendants. Another issue touched on is the taut relationship of the Black Panthers with Chicago and Federal authorities. Included as part of the film are discussions by the director and cooperative members about what they have filmed, or are going to film, and how they plan to handle aspects of the movie. There is a great deal of political preaching, both within the story and in the filmmakers discussions, and the film was considered to be somewhat heavy-handedly anti-U.S. at the time of its release. Godard and Gorin provide a (literally) running commentary by speaking only while sprinting up and down a crowded tennis court.(Clarke Fountain)
