‘It’s a dazzlingly executed, hugely enjoyable act of stylistic homage, but also the poignant story of a dysfunctional marriage and an insightful recreation of a critical and contradiction-ridden period of modern French history. Only hardcore Godardians – a pretty unforgiving bunch – would reject it out of hand.’
– Screen Daily
The screening will take place at the stunning boat-themed cinema Club de l’Etoile located just off the iconic Champs Elysees and only 2 blocks from the Arc de Triomphe! We will be offering a variety of French-inspired drinks and snacks during our cocktail hour from 8pm – choose from wine, beer, cider, or champagne and enjoy some handpicked French snacks. The screening will start at 9pm with tickets available both online and at the cinema – get yours early to avoid disappointment!
‘Paris 1967. Jean-Luc Godard, the leading filmmaker of his generation, is shooting La Chinoise with the woman he loves, Anne Wiazemsky, 20 years his junior. They are happy, attractive, in love, they marry. But the film’s reception unleashes a profound self-examination in Jean-Luc. The events of May ’68 will amplify this process, and the crisis that shakes the filmmaker will transform him profoundly, from a star cineaste to a Maoist artist entirely outside the system, as misunderstood as he is incomprehensible.’
