Redoubtable (2017): Hazanavicius’s Chronicle of Godard’s Affair with Actress Anne Wiazemsky

Redoubtable, orĀ Godard Mon Amour, takes a glimpse into the late 1960s affair between French New Wave director Jean-Luc Godard and the young actress Anne Wiazemsky.

Directed by Michel Hazanavicius, it was selected to compete for the Palme d’Or in the main competition section at the 2017 Cannes Film Fest.

The couple married within a year of meeting each other in 1967. That same year, Wiazemsky starred in Godard’s political docu-fiction filmĀ La Chinoise.

Godard revolutionized narrative structure as he manifested the philosophy behind them. But in the process, his relationship with Wiazemsky was short-lived.

Godard was a passionate filmmaker who carried political and spiritual beliefs. His films reflect a transgressive nature, one that is neither stable nor imbalanced. Godard’s views would change over time, with his marriage to Wiazemsky falling out of view.

Godard was an artist who challenged the idea of celebrity and film itself.
