Oh, Woe Is Me

Hélas pour moi

Directed by Jean-Luc Godard
Switzerland, France, 1993
  • French
  • English


This complex allegorical tale tells the story of man’s quest for spiritual meaning. When God enters the body of 1980s filmmaker Simon Donnadieu, his wife Rachel realizes that something has gone awry, but chooses to remain faithful to her erratically-behaving husband.

Our take

With Jean-Luc Godard’s restored & re-discovered The Rise and Fall of a Small Film Company premiering on MUBI, we’re reviving another post-New Wave favorite. His only—and contentious—collaboration with Depardieu fractures Greek myth and detective tale to question love and spirit in our fallen world.
