Our take

In this self-conscious and colourful film noir, Jean-Luc Godard delivers both the most extreme and exuberant expression of his bombastic pop-art filmmaking, and an indication of his turn to leftist politics. His last film with Anna Karina, featuring an unforgettable cameo from Marianne Faithfull.
