JEAN-LUC GODARD COLLECTION 1 15

£19.99

Product description

Triple bill of films by the influential French New Wave director Jean Luc Godard. 'Alphaville' (1965) is set in Godard's dystopian vision of a future world in which technological progress has been at the expense of human individuality and love. Private eye Lemmy Caution (Eddie Constantine) is catapulted into space and ends up in Alphaville, a city run by domineering scientist Dr von Braun (Howard Vernon). After Caution sees his chief contact being killed, he becomes determined to strike at Alphaville's cold heart: a powerful computer system that stamps out all traces of individuality and emotion in the populace it controls. Godard used contemporary Parisian locations for this offbeat futuristic thriller. In 'Une Femme Est Une Femme' (1961), Godard's playful tribute to the genre of musical comedy and first foray into colour film, beautiful nightclub stripper Angela (played by Godard's then wife Anna Karina) wants to settle down and have a baby. When her lover, Emile (Jean-Claude Brialy), refuses to oblige, Angela threatens to get pregnant by the first man that comes along, and Emile suggests his friend Alfred (Jean-Paul Belmondo), who is in love with Angela. 'Le Petit Soldat' (1960) is a controversial spy-romance, which was banned from French release for three years after being made on account of its unflinching portrayal of the Franco-Algerian conflict during Algeria's struggle for independence. The film follows Bruno (Michel Subor), a disillusioned young deserter who becomes involved in the French nationalist movement despite his lack of deep political beliefs. Under orders, he kills an Algerian sympathiser and is then captured and tortured. When he meets and falls in love with a beautiful young woman, Veronika Dreyer (Karina appearing in her first film role), he does not realise that she is fighting for the other side.
