LE PETIT SOLDAT
Monday, May 9
Directed by Jean-Luc Godard
Starring Anna Karina and Michael Subor
(1960) Right wing activist Michel Subor gets mixed up with leftist Anna Karina (the soon-to-be Mme. Godard in her debut) and the domestic backwash of the Algerian situation. One of Godard’s starkest and most serious works, banned in France for three years. 35 mm. Approx 88 mins.
“Godard’s first foray into politics is romance and political extremism and torture and talk of cinema all suspended in an existential mixture.”
– Pauline Kael
