Legendary director Jean-Luc Godard (Contempt) triumphantly returns to the screen with Film Socialisme, "a remarkable and beautiful and challenging" (Glenn Kenny, MSN) essay on the state of Mediterranean life, culture and history.It is split into three parts, the first set on a garish cruise ship traveling the Mediterranean Sea (with Patti Smith among its guests). Godard contrasts the rich and conflicted history of the ship's ancient itinerary with the ostentatious gluttony of its well-to-do passengers. The second part descends on a struggling rural French rest stop, whose owners, seeking to change their fate, are running for office. It is their discontented children, though, who point towards an alternate future. Finally, the film closes in a gorgeous, aggrieved montage that acts as an idiosyncratic history of the past and future of the region.Anticipating the Greek debt crisis and the Arab spring, Film Socialisme "is both timeless and timely" (J. Hoberman, Village Voice), shot in shimmeringly beautiful HD, but also hurtling headlong into the socio-political crises of our times.
