Le Petit soldat
Jean-Luc Godard, 1960
France | French with English subtitles | Format: 35mm | 88 minutes

Godard's follow-up to Breathless, about a right-wing terrorist (Michel Subor) during the Algerian conflict (the film was made before the creation of the OAS) who falls in love with an FLN sympathizer (Anna Karina) and is then accused of being a double agent. A sad, existential chill pervades this painful film, which was banned outright when it was completed and was only released three years later. Almost 40 years later, Subor would reprise the role of Bruno Forestier in Claire Denis' Beau travail.
