VIVRE SA VIE, feb 12

Jean-Luc Godard

This is Godard's third film. Anna Karina Godard’s then wife starred as
Nana, a mother and aspiring actress whose poor circumstances lead her to
prostitution. Nana believes she makes this choice of her own free will,
but the film emphasises the social structure that forces the poor into
such situations, and builds to a tragic conclusion. The film's style,
much like that of "Breathless", boasted the type of experimentation that
made the French New Wave so influential.
