    ``There`s this Arab joke. A guy picks up the phone and says: Allo?. The other guy replies: No, it`s Ali.``

  6. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Le petit soldat

    This film seems to confirm Godard's misogyny. The man is full of political ideals which he talks about in great detail. The woman looks at herself in the mirror. They're operatives working for the Left and the Right, who fall in love. Or at least he falls in love with the idea of her, since 'her' is an elusive term. He gets to be action man with guns and shooting and getting tortured. She combs her hair. contd.

    la guerre c'est de la merde. la vie c'est de la guerre.

  9. msmichel's rating of the film Le petit soldat

    Classic French cinema. Godard's second filmed feature was a foreshadowing of the challenging political work to come in its tale of a French deserter living in Geneva being manipulated by both sides in the Algerian conflict. Casting is excellent as is the cinematography and scripting that has a story to match the political agenda.

  10. Ethan's rating of the film Le petit soldat

    I defy you not to fall in love with Anna Karina.

  11. mubianer's rating of the film Le petit soldat

    The Intruder, the prequel (would make a perfect double bill).

  12. ikkini's rating of the film Le petit soldat

    Ok Jean-Luc, ça discute, mais t'es sûr que c'est pas un peu décousu tout ça ?

  14. Raymond Likes Subtitles's rating of the film Le petit soldat

    A visual love poem to Anna Karina snuck into a gritty political thriller. You can feel the love/desire Godard has for her coming off the screen.

  15. lndah's rating of the film Le petit soldat

    Distant, like many Godard films treat me. But 4 stars for Anna alone.

  16. Emily Sirko's rating of the film Le petit soldat

    Here for Anna and Godard's compelling ads for cigarettes. Whenever I begin to smoke it'll be bc of him. His plots rarely interest me but from this one I was particularly distant. Would have rather had 90 min of only the photography scene. More irresistible advice ie when Bach/Mozart/Beethoven are best. More Anna fixing her hair. For Godard to talk to me thru his characters forever uninterrupted about art women & men.

  17. Warren Spratley's rating of the film Le petit soldat

    Even more stunning & revolutionary than BREATHLESS. Political & existential issues have rarely been merged in cinema this powerfully. A quiet, deeply investigative film. Godard again spends much of his time assessing how to render conversational dynamics. Sharp singles, disorienting pans, an aesthetic interest in & pull towards Geneva landscapes, dissonance/atonality. To be on the wrong side of history: despair.

  18. ihor's rating of the film Le petit soldat

    Early Godard just for the sake of his pure style almost continually has appeal. From the sharp, witty, intimate and seemingly spontaneous dialogue to the camera work with the exact same qualities. For this Le Petit Soldat is still enjoyable although the plot is completely forgettable, and Godard doesn't say anything interesting or original about the contemporary politics of the Algerian war.

  19. Dalibor's rating of the film Le petit soldat

    It's faux intellect (®Bergman) is tying to hard, as only the torture sequence seems to work.

  20. thrym's rating of the film Le petit soldat

    nice dance scene with karina :)

  21. Mike A's rating of the film Le petit soldat

    Masterpiece. Strong political correspondences with subsequent Bertolucci films; the key difference is between Godard's philosophical search for a worldview beyond ideals and B.'s emotional wavering between idealism and cowardice. Superbly dynamic use of sound, and the eclectic, exuberant hybrid consciousness--genre, documentary, modernism--that makes the Nouvelle Vague such a treasure.

  22. TFCHooligan69's rating of the film Le petit soldat

    Even though I didn't enjoy this as much as Breathless, it's still an entertaining early work from Godard. Perhaps a re-watch is in order, but this time in a theatre.

  24. Joe Hackman's rating of the film Le petit soldat

    Saw this at the NuBev. <3 Karina is beautiful. Subor is a pitch-perfect Godard protagonist, wrestling with his own existential woes as much as the plot-based problems. The film is more straight-forward than some of Godard's other work but it relishes in the little moments. My favorite: Bruno asks Veronika to shake her hair back and forth and pays his friend $50, after betting that he wouldn't fall in love with her.
