Pierrot le fou is a 1965 French film directed by Jean-Luc Godard, starring Anna Karina and Jean-Paul Belmondo. The film is based onObsession, a novel by Lionel White. It was Jean-Luc Godard’s tenth feature film, released between Alphaville and Masculin, féminin. The title translates as Pete the Madman or Crazy Pete, but the film is usually released under its French title internationally.
I love Godard, I’m a huge fan of his, and Pierrot Le Fou is my favourite of all his films. The cinematography in it is beyond beautiful, all those vivid colors and wonderful places, the sea. Anna Karina is amazing, it’s always a pleasure to see her, besides, her outfits are absolutely incredible. Jean-Paul Belmondo is one of the greatest French actors, at least in my opinion, and I’m glad he did a few movies with Godard, especially this one. Take a look at these film stills and you’ll see how terribly pretty it is, I highly recommend it.
I’ll be doing quite a few more posts like this one, about other movies with beautiful cinematography.
