Double Feature with JULES AND JIM
(1962) dir Jean-Luc Godard w/Anna Karina, Sady Rebbot, Andre S. Labarthe [80 min]
Truffaut’s New Wave compatriot, Jean-Luc Godard also released an early masterpiece in 1962 with VIVRE SA VIE. Faced with a failed relationship, a dead-end job, and potential homelessness, young Parisienne Nana (Karina) turns to “the life” – that is, prostitution. A simple tale told in twelve Brechtian tableaux, VIVRE SA VIE is one of Godard’s most deeply felt films, anchored by Karina’s astonishing lead performance and Raoul Coutard’s breathtaking cinematography of street-level Paris.
