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.

The main triumph of Hazanavicius' film is that it makes [Godard] human.

Le Redoutable is a jokey Wikipedia cartoon of a biopic, skin deep in its character study and aggressively amused by its own barrage of Trivial Pursuit winks.

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

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

Jean-Luc Godard's films have often overflown with daring conceits - some of them helped change the cinema - but the legendary French filmmaker never imagined this one: a turning point in his life and work would become a droll romantic comedy.

Although it's probably not the film hardcore Godard fans wanted, Redoubtable is a funny, paint-by-numbers biopic about a man who revolutionized cinema as we know it, and remains a significant attempt nonetheless.
