Godard's politically infused film focuses on a group of students out to put the world to rights.
Dir Jean-Luc Godard
With Anne Wiazemsky, Jean-Pierre Léaud, Juliet Berto
A group of students discuss politics, fall in and out of love, and prepare to assassinate a Soviet cultural ambassador. Though made a year before the student protests, La Chinoise is uncannily prescient – characters even discuss the merits of shutting down the universities. It’s a portrait of where the Left was heading, and of Godard in transition as he moved away from narrative filmmaking in search of more radical cinematic forms.
