'The Artist' director Michel Hazanavicius returns with this '60s set biopic featuring Louis Garrel as French New Wave trailblazer Jean-Luc Godard. As the iconic director becomes more interested in politics he begins to alienate his friends and the cinema-going public, who preferred his zestful early films such as 'Breathless'. In charting the brief relationship between Godard and Anne Wiazemsky (following the filming of 'La Chinoise', their marriage, and the May 1968 riots in Paris), Hazanavicius gives his subject a thorough going over, liberally sprinkled with irony, humour and affection.
