Showing all 3 items
Jump to:


  • Godard examines the structure of movies, relationships and revolutions through the life of a couple in Paris.

  • Jean-Luc Godard dissects the structure of society, movies, love and revolution. He asks compelling questions: Can love survive a relationship? Can ideology survive revolution? He also looks at the French student riots of the 1960s with a critical eye, and ends up satirizing contemporary views of history. A battery of thoughts complete with criticism of modern society and movies.

  • "Tout va bien" is set in 1972, i.e. four years after the "events" of 1968. President De Gaulle and his successor president Pompidou had rolled back the would-be revolution and the political right wing held France in its grip. And yet "everything's fine" (tout va bien). Relations between people have changed. A factory is occupied, a woman striker phones her husband and tells him to mind the children, a Communist Party militant sells party literature in a supermarket and is ignored by young people (his party dominated the left before 1968).
