Godard Mon Amour(Le Redoutable)

Based on the memoir of actress, writer, and wife of Jean-Luc Godard, Anne Wiazemsky, Godard Mon Amour chronicles a pivotal episode in the life of the filmmaker. As the country is rocked by political and social protests of the 1960’s, their relationship is also transformed.

WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

83

IndieWire by Eric Kohn

Light and inoffensive, it trades the intellectual rigor of Godard’s work for fluffy sentiments, but never gets crass. Above all else, it succeeds at transforming cinephile trivia into a genuine crowdpleaser.

The A.V. Club by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

Though adapted from her memoirs, Godard Mon Amour dubiously minimizes her character. The most it offers is a depiction of a deteriorating marriage between a beautiful woman and an asshole who’s in the middle of a crisis of artistic conscience. And Godard already made one of those. It’s called "Contempt."
90

Screen International by Jonathan Romney

It’s a dazzlingly executed, hugely enjoyable act of stylistic homage, but also the poignant story of a dysfunctional marriage and an insightful recreation of a critical and contradiction-ridden period of modern French history.
67

The Playlist by Nikola Grozdanovic

It’s all fun and games and one big, great joke as we watch the cantankerous Jean-Luc dismiss his admirers and spit on contemporary cinema, but it’s hard to praise Redoubtable as a great film once its final act comes around
60

The Guardian by Peter Bradshaw

Michel Hazanavicius’s Redoubtable is a reasonably funny, moderately interesting movie, wearing its sprightly colourful pastiche like dry-cleaned retro couture.
60

The Hollywood Reporter by Todd McCarthy

Although the film manages some disarming insights into the man’s complex makeup and difficult behavior, a service enhanced by Louis Garrel’s very good lead performance, serious cinephiles will likely reject it as glib and disrespectful, while more mainstream viewers could be amused but not that interested.
