One of the high points of 20th century cinema. Ravishing and moving, the story features Jean-Paul Belmondo as Ferdinand, who one evening leaves his wife in the middle of a boring party. He meets a girl with whom he was in love five years earlier, and who is involved with a gang of criminals. After Ferdinand finds a dead man in her room, they leave Paris for a deserted island. One of Godard's most poetic films, full of the anguish of love, aptly summarized in his own words over the first images of the film, "At the age of fifty, Velasquez no longer painted precise objects; he painted what lay between precise objects." The final murder-suicide sequence on the island is one of the most brilliant Godard has ever created. In French with optional English Jean-Luc Godard---France---1965---110 mins.
