“A perfect film…one of the most extraordinary, beautiful, and original works of art that I know of.” – Susan Sontag
“The effect of the film is astonishing. It is clear, astringent, unsentimental, abrupt.” – Roger Ebert
In director Jean-Luc Godard’s landmark drama, Nana (Anna Karina), a young Parisian woman who works in a record shop, finds herself disillusioned by poverty and a crumbling marriage. Hoping to become an actress and break into films, Nana is once again disappointed when nothing comes of her dreams, and soon she turns to a bleak life of prostitution. When she meets a man (Peter Kassovitz) who truly cares for her, Nana’s hope returns — but Raoul (Sady Rebbot), her pimp, may have the final word.
Dir. Jean-Luc Godard. 1962. 83 min.
