"One of the most extraordinary, beautiful, and original works of art that I know of."—Susan Sontag

See this famed icon of the French new wave, one of Jean Luc Godard’s most deeply felt films, in a breathtaking new print from Janus Films. Anna Karina, then Godard’s wife, plays Nana Kleinfrankenheim, a young Parisienne who turns to prostitution when faced with a failed relationship, a dead-end job, and potential homelessness. Godard tells the story in a series of 12 almost Brechtian vignettes, connected by Karina's astonishing lead performance and cinematographer Raoul Coutard's gorgeous Paris streetscapes. (85 mins., 35mm)
