French film-maker Michel Hazanavicius, best known as the Oscar-winning director of the stylish and hugely entertaining The Artist (2011), recounts a turbulent period in the life of fellow countryman and director Jean-Luc Godard. Adapted for the big screen by Hazanavicius from an autobiographical novel by Anne Wiazemsky, actress and Godard’s ex-wife, Redoubtable is a multi-layered tale of personal and national crises told with fittingly Godardian shifts in tone and style.

With Louis Garrel playing the imperious and intense Godard and Stacy Martin as the hypnotic and talented Wiazemsky, Redoubtable neatly shifts from light-hearted, comedic tones to a darker, more emotionally strained atmosphere. Godard’s involvement in the 1968 protest movement and his subsequent philosophical and artistic meltdown has a disastrous effect on their marriage. Beautifully recreating the look and mood of the times, Redoubtable is an entertaining and audacious biopic of French cinema’s most famous director.
