VIVRE SA VIE was a turning point for Godard and remains one of his most dynamic films, combining brilliant visual design with a tragic character study. The lovely Anna Karina, Godard’s greatest muse, plays Nana, a young Parisian who aspires to be an actress but instead ends up a prostitute, her downward spiral depicted in a series of discrete tableaux of daydreams and dances. Featuring some of Karina and Godard’s most iconic moments – from her movie theatre vigil with LA PASSION DE JEANNE D’ARC to her seductive pool-hall strut – VIVRE SA VIE is a landmark of the French New Wave that still surprises at every turn. 

Jean-Luc Godard, France, 1962, 80 min. French spoken, Dutch subtitles.
