A stylish study of a rocky marriage, starring Brigitte Bardot and Michel Piccoli.
Dir Jean-Luc Godard
With Brigitte Bardot, Michel Piccoli, Jack Palance, Fritz Lang
Godard sweetens the bitterness of this tale about the compromising pitfalls of the film business and a marriage on the rocks, with elegant camerawork and music (by, respectively, Raoul Coutard and Georges Delerue), and with Fritz Lang playing himself – a living reminder that great art is possible. Fassbinder offered his own thoughts on filmmaking with Beware of a Holy Whore.
Also available on BFI Player.
The screening on Wednesday 12 April 20:40 will be introduced by Michael Witt, University of Roehampton.
