FOR EVER GODARD: A RETROSPECTIVE

Synopsis

Carmen is a member of a terrorist gang who falls in love with a young police officer guarding a bank that she and her cohorts try to rob.

Our take

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.
