In 1967, Jean-Luc Godard (Louis Garrel) is then one of the most renowned filmmaker of his generation, is shooting La Chinoise with the woman he loves, Anne Wiazemsky (Stacy Martin), 20 years his junior. Happy, in love, magnetic, they marry. But the film’s reception unleashes a profound self-examination in Jean-Luc. The events of May ‘68 will amplify this process, and the crisis that shakes Jean-Luc will change him profoundly, from star director to Maoist artist outsider, as misunderstood as he is impossible to understand.
