Movie Info

Paris 1967. Jean-Luc Godard, the leading 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 marry. But the film's reception unleashes a profound self-examination in Jean-Luc. The events of May '68 will amplify this process, and the crisis that shakes the filmmaker. Deep-rooted conflicts and misunderstandings will change him irrevocably. Revolutionary, off-the-wall, destructive, brilliant, he will pursue his choices and his beliefs to the breaking point... As he did with The Artist, Academy Award (R) winning director Michel Hazanavicius delivers another tribute to classic cinema, both wildly funny and deeply moving.

All Critics (48) | Top Critics (14)

Garrel is wonderfully dead-on as the director, Martin manages to convey some of the heartache in watching the man you love turn sour, and the undeniably talented Hazanavicius has fun aping the signature flourishes of Godard's cinematic style.

A film that, despite scattered amusements and insights, is fundamentally unsatisfying.

Michel Hazanavicius, the director who won an Oscar for The Artist, will nab only contempt for this frivolous throwaway about the life of a cinema revolutionary,

April 20, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The kind of curiously inconsequential homage that neither stokes your interest in cinema/Godard nor illuminates a turbulent love story between artists.

April 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Perhaps Hazanavicius thought he'd follow his subject's example and simply jump-cut from happy to sad. Godard had the verve to get away with it, but Godard Mon Amour doesn't.

The result is an entertainment of surprising liveliness.
