Directed by Jean-Luc Godard
Michel Piccoli as a screenwriter called in to doctor
the script of a film version of The Odyssey as his marriage to his
stunningly sexy wife (Brigitte Bardot) falls apart. The legendary Fritz Lang
plays himself as the movie's director and Jack Palance is hilariously
arrogant as the American producer. References to the Homer tale and
contemporary movie culture abound in this endlessly fascinating movie shot
in Cinemascope and Technicolor. Colin MacCabe went so far as to call it "the
greatest work of art produced in post-war Europe," in Sight and Sound.
French with English subtitles. 103 minutes.
