MUBI is delighted to present to you a cycle dedicated to the most iconic director of the French New Wave, Jean-Luc Godard. First a combative and ingenious film critic and then a near-mythical figure of the revolutionary modernist cinema of the 1960s, Godard has continued to push the beauty and the boundaries of film through the present day. Whether working with pop stars or cutting edge technology, he has never ceased to question his beloved 7th art, placing the cinematic image at the center of his thinking, appreciation, and critique of the world. An auteur precious to our understanding of the 20th (and 21st) century, we would like to honor Godard with this tour through his images.

Die Verachtung

Jean-Luc Godard Frankreich, 1963


An iconic, pop-colored exposé of the film industry as only Godard can do. 1960s stars Michel Piccoli and Brigitte Bardot fight and make love during a Fritz Lang (playing himself!) production of the Odyssey at Italy’s famed Cinecittà studios, scored to the most beautiful film music of all time.

Eine Frau ist Eine Frau

Jean-Luc Godard Frankreich, 1961


Godard’s radical “neorealist musical” is one of the most iconic films of the New Wave. Re-inventing Hollywood’s aging genre, it is suffuse with fourth-wall breaking playfulness, Eastmancolor Parisian streets, Legrand’s lush score, and the sparkling presence of Belmondo, Brialy and Anna Karina.


Jean-Luc Godard Schweiz, 1985


We return to Godard’s 1980s period of reinvention: images as beautiful as paintings composing cleverly fragmented shards of old movie conventions that forge new critique. Promising his producers a genre film, here they instead got a caustically funny remix of all possible hotel movie mysteries.


Jean-Luc Godard Frankreich, 1965


Überlass es Godard den Science-Fiction-Film mal eben mit einem Nouvelle Vague-Budget neu zu erfinden und uns in eine dystopische Pop-Zukunft zu katapultieren. Ein genialer Mix aus Futurismus, Film-Noir und Romanze, natürlich mit Anna Karina und dem unbeugsamen Eddie Constantine als “Lemmy Caution”.

Vorname Carmen

Jean-Luc Godard Frankreich, 1983


We move from the sumptuous romanticism of Godard’s Pierrot le fou to this similarly fragmentary love poem from his 1980s period. First Name: Carmen reinvents cinema into elliptical broken rhythms and passages of discordant poetry to renew one of the oldest of tales: that of two lovers on the lam.

Elf Uhr nachts

Jean-Luc Godard Frankreich, 1965


Today we begin a 7-film series dedicated to the greatest post-war filmmaker. Cinema, love, politics, art, war: Jean-Luc Godard’s obsessions explode in a supernova of color and emotion in this, possibly his funniest, most tragic film. A New Wave pinnacle, with Jean-Paul Belmondo and Anna Karina.
