Description

A year after the death of Jean-Luc Godard, his masterpiece Le mépris (1963) is back in cinemas in a new 4K restoration. A film that every new generation can rediscover and that every old generation must reinterpret.

Godard's Le Mépris shows Michel Piccoli as a screenwriter in conflict with a European director (Fritz Lang), an American producer (Jack Palance) and his wife Camille (Brigitte Bardot), as he rewrites The Odyssey.

Jean-Luc Godard's subversive entry into commercial cinema is a sophisticated, compelling Cinemascope epic; a penetrating study of marital breakdown, artistic compromises and the filmmaking process, with an unforgettable soundtrack by the multi-award winning composer Georges Delerue.
