After spending the 1970s experimenting with video, groundbreaking director Jean-Luc Godard returned to commerical film production with this movie about three people whose lives are all at a turning point: a country girl turned city prostitute (Isabelle Huppert), a city woman who moves to the country (Nathalie Baye), and a washed-up television director falling into despair (Jacques Dutronc). The film exhibits such familiar Godard traits as the attentiveness to the rhythm and textures of city life and the innovative approach to sound, while also introducing a radical new slow motion technique and a concern with landscape not witnessed in any of his previous works.
