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...
