October 16, 2020
Part homage, part dissection, this cheeky drama (based on the recently deceased Wiaemsky's memoirs) is a cleverly meta piece that is often very funny...

Godard Mon Amour is a film strictly for Godard devotees, fans who never jumped from the train even when its journey seemed lost in a fog of outdated political slogans and stale cant.

Godard Mon Amour is a film that will mostly appeal to fan of man and fans of French cinema. It feels like an old school French film while looking the part and being filled with attention to details on all fronts.

Godard Mon Amour is a witty and and whimsical new film from Michel Hazanavicius, who directed the Oscar-winning stunner, The Artist.

It is not a despicable film, but it is a failed proposal that doesn't know what exactly it wants to be. [Full Review in Spanish]
June 3, 2019
A strange and seemingly pointless exercise in self congratulation that turns the romantic travails of two legendary cinema artists into cheap tabloid fodder.
November 1, 2018
Being reminded that an artist's genius sometimes contradicts his humanity has the effect of a wake-up call -- even though Hazanavicius reduces the innovator who changed the world to film-buff inside-jokes.

Michel Hazanavicius...has made another pastiche film that's wickedly funny at times.

Talk about Contempt!
August 28, 2018
Godard Mon Amour plays like an all-over-the-place pastiche of biography and roast that says little.
July 23, 2018
The actors, it should be noted, do a good job with their somewhat ungrateful parts, but there is not much they can do to elevate the film from its determined superficiality.

Occasionally disrespectful and hugely amusing... It's carried off with an irreverence that would delight Mel Brooks.

Disciples of Godard will be gritting their teeth... but then Redoubtable isn't really for them.
May 15, 2018
It's irreverent about a filmmaker many admire, and interesting, but not very emotionally involving and unlikely to leave you Breathless.
May 15, 2018
Hazanavicius's film is full of stylistic nods to Godard, but is a bit of a hatchet job: it may also be accurate.
May 15, 2018
When the only person in your movie is a dead zone, your film follows suit.
May 13, 2018
In the end, it plays like the sort of thin comedy about creativity that Woody Allen (whose better films are also homaged here) regularly knocks out.
May 13, 2018
I found myself chuckling throughout Redoubtable, surprisingly entertained by its slapstick iconoclasm.
May 11, 2018
[Jean Luc] Godard himself called the film "stupid" and I have a hard time disagreeing.
May 11, 2018
A searing condemnation of the ways in which politics have a tendency to creep into every nook and cranny of life, from artistic endeavors to love affairs to friendships.
