Jean-Luc Godard 1990
Switzerland/France | French with English subtitles | Format: 35mm | 89 minutes
One of Godard’s most powerful and beautiful films, set on an estate in the lush Swiss countryside near a long and winding road where a wandering stranger (Alain Delon) is hit by a wealthy woman (Domeniziana Giordano) in a sports car, kept by her and then cast aside when the frustrating work of being a couple takes its toll. The dulling anxiety of maintaining money, the transcendent glory of wind and water, earth and sky, the strangeness of simply being alive—that’s Nouvelle Vague.
Venue: Walter Reade Theater, Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center
