Godards’ Praise of Love at AF

Legendary French filmmaker, Jean-Luc Godard’s drama ‘Eloge de l’amour’ (In Praise of Love) will be screened at 3 pm on Tuesday October 19 and at 6.30 pm Wednesday, October 20 at the Alliance Francaise de Colombo.

The film revolves around a filmmaker Edgar who is preparing to make a film about the four stages of love (meeting, passion, separation and reconciliation). Having secured financial backing, his biggest problem is to find a suitable young woman to play his female lead in the film. When finally he finds his ideal actress, a young lawyer named Berthe, she dies soon afterwards. Convinced that he has met her somewhere before, Edgar looks back on his recent past.

He recalls a time, two years before, when he met an elderly couple who were in the process of selling their wartime experiences in the French Resistance to a Hollywood film production company. It was here that Edgar met Berthe for the first time...

One of Godard’s most intelligent and thought-provoking films, Éloge de l’amour manages to avoid the self-indulgent excesses of the director’s previous works. Rather than provoking or mystifying its audience, this latest Godard has an almost irresistible charm, offering some poignant reflections on life, love and the dying art of cinema.

The film with English subtitles is suitable for persons of 15 years and over.
