Michel Hazanavicius (the Oscar®-winning director of The Artist) delivers a brilliantly realised portrait of iconic French director Jean-Luc Godard, his inspirations, romances and philosophy.

In Paris in 1967, seven years after his debut rocked international cinema, Jean-Luc Godard (Louis Garrel) underwent a profound artistic crisis. His marriage to Anna Karina, muse of his groundbreaking films, is over, and sensing political and cultural change in the air a full year before the unrest of May '68, he embarks on a new film - La Chinoise - with a new muse: Anne Wiazemsky.

A hugely enjoyable political, philosophical and biographical roller coaster about the human struggle behind art - and one of cinema's most enigmatic auteurs.
