Great movie – like nothing else I can think of. Strange, deep, moody, bleak photography and a hard-edge to the ‘message’. Karina looks drop-dead gorgeous and although Eddie Constantine is often slated as a ham actor by the critics I thought he looked and acted the part to perfection here. This is a movie that gets into your head and even if you don’t rate it highly on a first viewing it draws you back for a second look. And a third!

I agree, Karina looks amazing in all the Godard films, an absolute beauty but also so interesting to look at, to compare her to someone recent I think Elizabeth Olsen in Martha Marcy May Marlene really hold the attention of the camera in a way few other actresses can (it also help that they are both great actresses)
I love the absolute spate of ideas Godard pours into every film, on a first watch they can indeed seem a little cold, or academic but I find they always draw me back. When Im getting ready to work on a film I like to watch Godard, not to pilfer ideas but just to remind myslef to forget boundaries and remember that we can do ANYTHING with film.
