Synopsis

Paul, an aspiring playwright, finds himself caught between the director and the producer, on a movie adaptation of Homer’s Odyssey. When Paul finds himself swayed by the power of the producer’s money, he finds his wife Camille begins to regard him with increasing contempt.

Our take

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.
