director: Jean-Luc Godard

runtime: 90

Experimental film about a young family in a social housing complex in France. The film uses a distinct style by presenting two images on screen simultaneously, leading to multiple interpretations of the story and to comments on the film-making and editing process.

The film is divided into two parts. In the first third, Godard discusses what it takes to make a film (money) and describes how he got the money. In the remaining two thirds, each character in the story discusses their quotidian experiences through dialogue which is primarily poetic, and secondarily political.
