This is how it goes

Paris, 1967. Jean-Luc Godard is shifting from revolutionising cinema to becoming a revolutionary tout court. He directed the maker of “A bout de souffle”, “Le Mépris” and “Pierrot le fou”. He’s idolised by critics and intellectuals.  His female star is Anne Wiazemsky, writer François Mauriac’s granddaughter.  She’s sixteen years his junior. Anne and Jean-Luc have been dating since 1966 and they marry in the same year. She admires Jean-Luc’s originality, intelligence, wit and boldness while he loves Anne’s freshness and – admiration of him. But May 1968 puts their marriage to the test. Godard, who is more and more involved in the revolution, indeed becomes less and less available to his young wife. This does not stop him from being jealous. It also looks as if the genius is losing his sense of humour. Written by Guy Bellinger
