Pierrot le Fou

1h 50m Feature, Crime, Romance 1965

Godard continues his fascination with the American crime genre in a film that reunited the director with stars Jean-Paul Belmondo (Breathless) and (ex-wife) Anna Karina.

Ferdinand, aka Pierrot (Jean-Paul Belmondo), dissatisfied with his professionally-stalled life and listless marriage in Paris, sets off on a picaresque journey across France, towards the warmth of the Mediterranean, with the incandescent Marianne (Anna Karina) – the couple’s babysitter. Pierrot’s fantasy idyll is upended when he realises they are being pursued by Marianne’s shady brother and criminal gang connections.
