Critic Reviews for Godard Mon Amour (Le redoutable)
As Hazanavicius tries to peel back the layers of Godard, he only proves how little of the man's work he understands.
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.
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.
"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.
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.
Audience Reviews for Godard Mon Amour (Le redoutable)
Garrel and Martin are both pretty impressive here, while Hazanavicius plays with language (and metalanguage) to paint a surprisingly unsympathetic portrait of an insecure (and sometimes quite mean and cruel) artist who despises the old and is afraid of what the youth thinks of him.
