DIRECTOR: JEAN-LUC GODARD

CAST: ANNA KARINA

"Vivre Sa Vie seems to me a perfect film. That is, it sets out to do something that is both noble and intricate, and wholly succeeds in doing it. Godard is perhaps the only director today who is interested in "philosophical films" and possesses an intelligence and discretion equal to the task. Other directors have had their "views" on contemporary society and the nature of our humanity; and sometimes their films survive the ideas they propose. Godard is the first director fully to grasp the fact that, in order to deal seriously with ideas, one must create a new film language for expressing them– if the ideas are to have an suppleness and complexity. Godard is in my opinion the most important director to have emerged in the last ten years.”—Susan Sontag
