Redoubtable

(Le redoutable)
(2017)

Louis Garrel (Saint Laurent) is legendary French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard in this slice-of-life biopic that portrays a significant turning point in his career. From the Oscar-winning filmmaker behind 2011's The Artist.... More

"Jean-Luc Godard — arguably the most renowned 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 even get married. But the film’s reception unleashes a profound self-examination in Jean-Luc. The events of May ’68 will amplify this process leading to drastic changes in the filmmaker’s behaviour and perception of the world. From star filmmaker to Maoist artist, revolutionary, off-the-wall, destructive, brilliant, misunderstood and incomprehensible, he will pursue his choices and his beliefs to a breaking point."

The Press Reviews

  • Michel Hazanavicius’s Redoubtable is a reasonably funny, moderately interesting movie, wearing its sprightly colourful pastiche like dry-cleaned retro couture. Full Review

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

  • Light and inoffensive, it trades the intellectual rigor of Godard’s work for fluffy sentiments, but never gets crass. Full Review
