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.

Critic Reviews for Godard Mon Amour (Le redoutable)

All Critics (78) | Top Critics (19)

As Hazanavicius tries to peel back the layers of Godard, he only proves how little of the man's work he understands.

May 11, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

The glib, self-conscious brio never leads anywhere.

May 9, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Both Garrel and Martin are good. And it's important to note that Hazanavicius is quite adept at the comedic bits, as well as at the occasional more-serious scenes, which deal with the disintegration of the marriage.

April 26, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Hazanavicius' irreverence toward a living icon is unexpected, but appropriate. Yet the movie also pays tribute to Godard by imitating the loose playfulness of his early work.

April 26, 2018 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

"Godard Mon Amour" is very much like a Woody Allen film, with Godard embodying Allen's negative traits of pretentiousness, neurosis, and misogyny without the redeeming virtue of humor.

April 26, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

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.
