Godard, reviens

Between the end of the 1970s and the middle of the 1990s, Jean-Luc Godard directed many films. Short films, essay films, commercials, feature films. Above all, he once again makes a pact with the traditional production system and the stars (Johnny Hallyday, the Rita Mitsouko, Nathalie Baye, Molly Ringwald, Isabelle Huppert)... Godard returns but defies all the expectations and leads the game.

Faced with the upheavals of contemporary history, some of them shy away and others commit themselves, like Camille, Jérôme and Djamila who go to Sarajevo to play Musset or Vicky who tries to make her film in Paris. For Ever Mozart is composed of four films where, from one film to the next, only the director remains. The music remains...

For Ever Mozart

Jean-Luc Godard

Born in Paris in 1930, Jean-Luc Godard grew up on the shores of Lake Geneva, and his first passion was painting. After the Second World War, which he spent in Switzerland, his family sent him to study in Paris, but Godard mainly attended film clubs and the Cinémathèque française. At the beginning of the 1950s, he attended the Ciné-club du Quartier Latin (Cinema club of the Latin Quarter) where he met Maurice Schérer (soon to be Eric Rohmer), François Truffaut, Claude Chabrol and Jacques Rivette, among others, with whom he took his first steps as a critic and embarked on the adventure of the Cahiers du cinéma. After directing a few short films, he moved on to feature films in the wake of François Truffaut by directing A bout de souffle in 1960, which contributed to the launch of the French New Wave. He will not stop shooting until the 2010s, constituting over the decades an exploratory work that has always pushed the boundaries of cinema.
