AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Godard Mon Amour imagines a chapter from Jean-Luc Godard's life with no shortage of whimsy, but lacks its subject's essential inspiration.

Movie Info

Paris 1967. Jean-Luc Godard, the leading 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 marry. But the film's reception unleashes a profound self-examination in Jean-Luc. The events of May '68 will amplify this process, and the crisis that shakes the filmmaker. Deep-rooted conflicts and misunderstandings will change him irrevocably. Revolutionary, off-the-wall, destructive, brilliant, he will pursue his choices and his beliefs to the breaking point... As he did with The Artist, Academy Award (R) winning director Michel Hazanavicius delivers another tribute to classic cinema, both wildly funny and deeply moving.

Occasionally disrespectful and hugely amusing... It's carried off with an irreverence that would delight Mel Brooks.

Disciples of Godard will be gritting their teeth... but then Redoubtable isn't really for them.

I found myself chuckling throughout Redoubtable, surprisingly entertained by its slapstick iconoclasm.

As Hazanavicius tries to peel back the layers of Godard, he only proves how little of the man's work he understands.

May 11, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

there's a playful irreverence about the narrative treatment that keeps it watchable, and Garrel, often seen as a narcissistic actor, paradoxically gives perhaps his most likeable performance yet as a largely dislikeable character.

May 10, 2018 | Full Review…

Manages to be a biopic, postmodern comedy, stylistic homage and poignant relationship study all at once.

Audience Reviews for Godard Mon Amour (Le redoutable)

½

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.
