Interesting two-minute short from the famous director actually says a lot more than some of his feature length films. The entire film has one photo being shown with voice over narration. At the start of the film we only see a few fragments of the photo but over time more parts of the photo are revealed until we see soldiers with guns standing above some people lying on the ground. The narration tries to link the real world with art and the written narration is pretty strong and gets its point across without having to be preachy. What works so well here is the way Godard edited the film and how the single photo can have so many different meanings when viewed differently. There's nothing groundbreaking here but the film certainly is an interesting one and one worth viewing for fans of the director.
