Weekend

cast: Mireille Darc, Jean Yanne, Jean-Pierre Léaud

year: 1967

colour: yes

certificate:

director: Jean-Luc Godard

runtime: 105

Roland (Jean Yanne) and Corinne (Mireille Darc) set out on a road trip toward Oinville that is lined with violence. Godard's subtext that car culture will lead capitalism to self-destruct seems no less relevant today. Famous for its ten-minute tracking shot as much as its disorientating storyline, Weekend was his farewell to commercial cinema.
