Redoubtable

Louis Garrel (Saint Laurent) is legendary French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard in this slice-of-life biopic that portrays a significant turning point in his career. From the Oscar-winning filmmaker behind 2011's The Artist.

"Jean-Luc Godard — arguably the most renowned filmmaker of his generation — is shooting La Chinoise with the woman he loves, Anne Wiazemsky, 20 years his junior. They are happy, attractive, in love. They even get married. But the film’s reception unleashes a profound self-examination in Jean-Luc. The events of May ’68 will amplify this process leading to drastic changes in the filmmaker’s behaviour and perception of the world. From star filmmaker to Maoist artist, revolutionary, off-the-wall, destructive, brilliant, misunderstood and incomprehensible, he will pursue his choices and his beliefs to a breaking point." (French Film Festival)

A lightly audacious and fascinating movie (if not exactly one to warm your heart).

Michel Hazanavicius’s Redoubtable is a reasonably funny, moderately interesting movie, wearing its sprightly colourful pastiche like dry-cleaned retro couture.

Light and inoffensive, it trades the intellectual rigor of Godard’s work for fluffy sentiments, but never gets crass.

Serious cinephiles will likely reject it as glib and disrespectful, while more mainstream viewers could be amused but not that interested.
