GOODBYE TO LANGUAGE 3/D
(ADIEU AU LANGAGE)
Directed by Jean-Luc Godard/France/2014/70mins.
Winner of the Jury Prize at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, Goodbye to Language 3D is a sensorially immersive experience employing 3D technology to mind-expanding effect. Starring Heloise Godet, Kamel Abdeli and Godard's own dog as Roxy, Jean-Luc Godard's latest film is a "thrilling cinematic experience" (Manohla Dargis, The New York Times) and a complete "masterpiece" (Amy Taubin, Film Comment).
In the words of JLG…
the idea is simple
a married woman and a single man meet
they love, they argue, fists fly
a dog strays between town and country
the seasons pass
the man and woman meet again
the dog finds itself between them
the former husband shatters everything
a second film begins
the same as the first
and not yet
from the human race we pass to metaphor
this ends in barking
and a baby’s cries
Film Festival Jury Prize
“FOR ME, AT CANNES 2014, THERE WAS JEAN-LUC GODARD’S ADIEU AU LANGAGE, AND THEN THERE WAS EVERYTHING ELSE…I think Godard would have been pleased with the cheer of “Godard forever” that rose from the packed Lumière Theater as the lights dimmed for the premiere of his first 3/D feature, but also by the spontaneous applause that erupted mid-movie, after a mindboggling, eyeball-dislocating, narratively profound sequence that involves the superimposition of two 3/D images that begin as one, go their separate ways, and reunite in the end…Having upended the rules in Breathless, Godard does it anew here..”-Amy Taubin, Film Comment
