Michel Hazanavicius (director of the Academy Award-winning THE ARTIST) chronicles the relationship between legendary French New Wave filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard (played by an unrecognizable Louis Garrel) and his second wife, AU HASARD BALTHAZAR actress Anne Wiazemsky (Stacey Martin), in this breezy, comedic adaptation of Wiazemsky's autobiographical novel Un an après. When Godard's first collaboration with Wiazemsky, the Maoist-flirting LA CHINOISE, is met with wide antipathy, the notoriously temperamental director is flung into a personal, artistic and political crisis that is only exacerbated by the student riots of May 1968. In the midst of Godard's attempts to reinvent himself in the image of the political revolutionary, Wiazemsky finds herself less and less enthralled with the wearying antics of French cinema's former wunderkind. Rife with homages to many of Godard's classic films, GODARD MON AMOUR is a fascinating and irreverent peek at a key transitional moments in the life and career of one of international cinema's great iconoclasts.
“The movie toys with Godard’s own early filmmaking style in a wry effort to salute his legacy and demystify its evolution. Light and inoffensive, it trades the intellectual rigor of Godard’s work for fluffy sentiments, but never gets crass. Above all else, it succeeds at transforming cinephile trivia into a genuine crowdpleaser.” —Eric Kohn, IndieWire "It's a dazzlingly executed, hugely enjoyable act of stylistic homage, but also the poignant story of a dysfunctional marriage and an insightful recreation of a critical and contradiction-ridden period of modern French history." —Jonathan Romney, Screen International
