Ugh, pedantic posturing put on film-vacant characters of a theme that was very real at the time. Compared to the terrorists of today these self-involved nothings seem to be typical of the type; bored, stupid, posturing adolescents with no real cause.

This is a classic example of French New Wave film. Godard employs many devices taken from Bertolt Brecht’s Epic Theatre, and if the viewer is unaware of this or unable to appreciate it they likely will find it mystifying and difficult to watch. It is my favorite Godard film.

May be historically significant but is not an especially pleasant viewing.
