Join us to our special screening in tribute to French new wave actress Anna Karina who recently passed away. VIVRE SA VIE was a turning point for Jean-Luc Godard and 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 but instead ends up a prostitute, her downward spiral depicted in a series of discrete tableaux of daydreams and dances.
Nana works in a record store but dreams of becoming a film actress. After separating from her boyfriend, she drifts into prostitution and takes up with Raoul, a pimp, who teaches her the tricks of the trade. In time she falls in love with a young artist and attempts to break away, but Raoul is not about to let one of his most lucrative commodities slip out of his hands… – Plot
This is Godard at his most playful, and “Vivre Sa Vie” is by turns low-brow, high-brow, action-packed and dialogue driven. It’s a masterpiece of inventiveness that’s as radically mind-blowing today as it was four decades ago. – BBC
