The Image Book Le livre d'image

Jean-Luc Godard / Switzerland, France / 2018 / 85 min / French

“Nothing but the silence, nothing but a revolutionary song, history in five chapters, like five fingers on your hand.”

Do you still remember how, long ago, we trained our thoughts? Most often we'd start from a dream. We wondered how, in total darkness, colours of such intensity could emerge within us. In a soft, low voice. Saying great things. Surprising, deep and accurate matters. Image and words. Like a bad dream written on a stormy night. Under western eyes. The lost paradises. War is here.

"As you watch The Image Book, it conjures a totemic darkness that can’t be shaken off. Godard tells us that people used to want to be Faust, and now they just want to be kings. That’s the difference between a world of religion and a world of chintzy power. Our world, in The Image Book, has finally caught up to Jean-Luc Godard’s doom-laden dream of it. He seems to be saying that we all have a choice: to change it, or to sit back in our TV armchairs and watch." (Owen Gleiberman, Variety)

Jean-Luc Godard
Born in 1930 in Paris, Godard became involved in cinema as a student, and in 1952 started publishing film reviews in Cahiers du cinéma. He rose to world fame in 1960 with Breathless. One of the most prominent representatives of the French New Wave and auteur theory, Godard has made over 100 films.
