Breathless
There was before Breathless, and there was after Breathless. Jean-Luc Godard burst onto the film scene in 1960 with this jazzy, free-form, and sexy homage to the American film genres that inspired him as a writer for Cahiers du cinema.…
Vivre sa vie
This turning point for Jean-Luc Godard remains one of his most dynamic films, combining brilliant visual design with a tragic character study. The lovely Anna Karina, Godard's greatest muse, plays Nana, a young Parisian who aspires to be an actress…
Alphaville
In ALPHAVILLE, Jean-Luc Godard fuses a hardboiled detective story with science fiction. Lemmy Caution (Eddie Constantine), a hero Godard borrowed from a series of French adventure films, comes to ALPHAVILLE, the capital of a totalitarian state, in order to destroy…
La Chinoise
Paris, 1967. Disillusioned by their suburban lifestyles, a group of middle-class students, led by Guillaume (Jean-Pierre Leaud) and Veronique (Anne Wiazemsky), form a small Maoist cell and plan to change the world by any means necessary. After studying the growth…
A Married Woman - Une Femme Mariée
Legendary French New Wave auteur Jean-Luc Godard reverses the standard love triangle and challenges the influence of consumer culture in one of his most provocative dissections of modern life. Charlotte (Macha Meril) aimlessly drifts between morning affairs with the artistic…
Detective - Détective

Goodbye to Language
Winner of the Jury Prize at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival , Goodbye to Language is a triumphant masterpiece from Jean-Luc Godard. The film follows a couple whose relationship breaks down along with the images, which in its second half…
Hail Mary
Denounced by the Pope and banned and boycotted worldwide, this surprisingly serene and lyrical work translates the Virgin Birth into tangible contemporary terms, with Mary as a teenage basketball-playing gas-station attendant who receives the Annunciation by jetliner. Mary is a…
First Name: Carmen - Prénom Carmen
Carmen needs money to make a film with her friends so she robs a bank. Joseph, a young man in love, runs off with her to the seaside. Filming starts again, but is actually a front for the kidnapping of…
Aria
Ten of the world's greatest directors (including Derek Jarman, Jean-Luc Godard, Ken Russell, and Robert Altman) were commissioned to create short pieces based on the world's greatest opera music. The result is erotic, demented, funny, poignant, extravagant, outrageous, breathtaking and…
Le Gai Savoir - The Joy of Learning
While alone in an abandoned television studio, two militants, Emile Rousseau and Patricia Lumumba, have a discourse on language. Referring to spoken word as "the enemy"--the weapon used by the establishment to confuse liberation movements--the two deconstruct the meanings of…
Film Socialisme
Legendary director Jean-Luc Godard returns to the screen with Film Socialisme, a magisterial essay on the decline of European Civilization. As a garish cruise ship travels the Mediterranean (with Patti Smith among its guests), Godard embarks on a state of…
Hélas Pour Moi - Oh, Woe Is Me
Directed by legendary filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard, HELAS POUR MOI is based on the great Italian poet Leopardi and his description of mankind's slow, difficult path, with the anxiety and constant worry dogging the creator. The film is also inspired by…
For Ever Mozart
The "story" is a complex tapestry in four panels, with the character of the Director linking the sections. A film is planned but is stymied by casting problems; a play is produced in Sarajevo, but the actors are swept away…
