Contempt

Jean-Luc Godard teams with screen icon Brigitte Bardot in this chronicle of a disintegrating marriage, set against the backdrop of a movie production.

A philistine in the art film business, Jeremy Prokosch is a producer unhappy with the work of his director. Prokosch has hired Fritz Lang to direct an adaptation of "The Odyssey," but when it seems that the legendary filmmaker is making a picture destined to bomb at the box office, he brings in a screenwriter to energise the script. The professional intersects with the personal when a rift develops between the writer and his wife.
