Academy Award® winning director Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist) returns with this wildly funny and deeply moving tribute to classic cinema.

In 1960’s Paris, Jean-Luc Godard (Louis Garrel, The Dreamers) is the leading filmmaker of his generation. He’s shooting La Chinoise with the woman he loves, Anne Wiazemsky (Stacy Martin, Nymphomaniac Vols I and II), 20 years his junior. They are happy, attractive, in love. They marry. But the film’s reception unleashes a profound self-examination in Jean-Luc. The events of May ’68 will amplify this process, and the crisis that shakes the filmmaker.

Deep-rooted conflicts and misunderstandings will change him irrevocably, and the revolutionary, destructive, brilliant filmmaker will pursue his choices and beliefs to breaking point...

Watch the film on BFI Player and on Curzon Home Cinema.
