Pierrot le fou


Pierrot le fou 01sm

Ryde Film Club is screening Jean-Luc Godard's excellent Pierrot le fou in place of the previously advertised film (400 Blows). The change is due to circumstances beyond our control.

Pierrot le fou stars Jean-Paul Belmondo and Anna Karina and is directed by Jean-Luc Godard.

Released in 1965, the film lasts 110 minutes and is category 15.

Godard called it the story of the 'last romantic couple', but it was also his spectacular farewell to the style and spirit of the Nouvelle Vague.

The story

On impulse, Ferdinand abandons wife and child to take off with Marianne, an old flame, on a crazy and eventually tragic adventure, involving fast cars, mysterious gangsters and a Mediterranean idyll that turns sour.
