Commissioned by the heads of the 2000 Cannes Film Festival to make an opening-night short commemorating cinema as it enters its second full century, Godard instead offers up a 17-minute barrage of re-edited footage of wars and Nazi atrocities, interspersed with clips of Maurice Chevalier in "Gigi" and Godard's own "À bout de souffle."Written by

powerful, personal history of the 1900's!!! wow, what a wonderful personal history of the 1900's from one of the master of cinema!!! this video collage documentary is power and heartbreaking in just a mere 16mins. Godard masterfully cuts together war footage from the past with film clips from the past to create a breakthrough experience that only film/video could offer.
this short film was commissioned by the Cannes' to open up the 2000 festival. what a great way to start festival. i was able to find a rare DVD, only one of 500 copies on ebay, worth every penny.
if you are able to find a copy and are an avid godard fan, it is a collectible item just for you!!!
